The name Port of Egypt honors a reference to the property’s adjacent and sizeable sand bar. In the early 1900s, it was said to resemble a desert by a local schoolteacher inspiring students of places afar. That teacher was the father of one of the property’s past owners, Philip Dickinson, who in 1932 operated a boat rental station under the name. The Lieblein family reinstated the moniker in 1946 when they took over what had become Captain Reiter’s fishing station and rebranded the property Port of Egypt.
