Biemiller’s Cove


Now a part of Cedar Point and the Causeway, Biemiller’s Cove used to be a popular fishing spot for area residents. Charles E. Frohman wrote in Sandusky's Yesterdays that small cottages were built along the cove, and were accessible by sailboat or rowboat in the late 1800s. In 1882 the steamer R.B. Hayes transported people from Biemiller’s Cove to Cedar Point. Pictured below are two rowboats in the cove.


Charles Schuck took this photograph of men net fishing at Biemiller’s Cove in the early twentieth century.
