History:  

BEMIDJI Township and city were named for an Ojibwe leader whose band of about 50 people had their homes on and near the south end of Lake Bemidji and around Lake Irving, including the site where white settlers founded this town. The chief died in April 1904 at the age of 85 years. His name was taken from the older Ojibwe name of this lake, crossed by the Mississippi. Rev. Joseph A. Gilfillan translated it as "the lake where the current flows directly across the water, referring to the river flowing squarely out of the lake on the east side, cutting it in two as it were, very briefly Cross lake." The city was settled in 1866. Its post office was spelled Bermidji 1894-98, when it was changed to its present spelling and incorporated as a village. During the city's early settlement, there were three sawmills, two planing mills, four churches, three schools, a number of small businesses, the Bemidji Opera House, and the Band of Bemidji.

In February of 2014, the BCAC changed its name to the Watermark Art Center. Watermark moved into its new location in the former Lakeside Luekens grocery store in December 2017.
