About Put-in-Bay

Located in the shallow western end of Lake Erie is a group of 20 or more islands. One of these, Put-in-Bay (South Bass Island), served as a base of operations for Oliver Hazard Perry. It was from the harbor called Put-in-Bay that Perry sailed to defeat the British fleet under Robert H. Barclay during the war of 1812.

Today there is a 352-foot granite structure, known as the Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial, which commemorates not only a naval battle but a peace which has lasted for more than 150 years. Put-in-Bay is only a few miles away from the Canadian border.

Put-in-Bay is a summer resort, and has been for over 100 years. Today, Put-in-Bay is a vibrant tourist resort complete with taverns, gift shops, hotels, boating, fishing, a national monument, caves and other island attractions.  There are activities and entertainment for all ages.  There are also nearly 500 residents that live in Put-in-Bay.
