Pier Building 1886 - 1916
Replacing the old wharf, the pier building stood three stories high, with ticket, baggage and dock offices in the first floor, shops and an observation veranda on the second floor, and dorms and classrooms on the third floor. This was the main gateway to Chautauqua until the automobile made steamboat travel obsolete. Above the building stood a wooden tower containing Meneely bells. The bells were removed and placed in the current bell tower in 1911.
