Put-in-Bay, the focal point of the Bass Islands, and where thousands of people seek the refreshing Lake Erie environment every summer, is home to the inspiring Lake Erie Islands Historical Society museum collection showcasing awe-inspiring developments of innovators, entrepreneurs, and ordinary people who populated north-central Ohio.
Wine growing history, famous architectural landmarks, nautical and flight milestones, road racing, Centennial and Bicentennial of the Battle of Lake Erie exhibits, and unique Americana artifacts deliver a stunning view of lives well-lived in previous ages.
The museum gift shop sells “Dont Give Up The Ship“ flags, clothing, and glass ware, as well as a large selection of books written by local authors. Complete your visit with a stop at the Resale Shop, located behind the museum, where you can find a treasure or two, including local antiques at bargain prices.
