Interesting Facts about Penn Yan Real Estate

Originally Penn Yan was called Union, but the residents were not thrilled with that name. The settlers from New England wanted a name that was yankee sounding and the settlers from Pennsylvania wanted a name that reminded them of their original state. So they came up with Penn Yan – Penn for Pennsylvania and Yan stood for Yankees.

The area was only slowly developing until the  Crooked Lake Canal opened around 1833. Soon paper mills, plaster mills and tanneries sprung up around the Canal.  By 1850 the transportation options included the Canandaigua Rail Road.

The Penn Yan Boat Company was founded by a German immigrant  in 1921 and they became well known for manufacturing high quality lake and fishing type boats.

The area has many Amish and Mennonite families who started arriving in the 1970s feeling cheaper land to farm.  Keuka Lake State Park is six miles west of Penn Yan.
