Scenic Vistas & History at Perry Monument, Put-in-bay

A beacon of peace in Lake Erie, no visit is complete without taking in the sweeping international vista from the deck atop this 352-foot memorial, just 5 miles from the Canadian border. Dedicated to those who fought in the pivotal  Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812, nothing puts the significance one battle can have  into perspective like Perry Monument. Put-in-Bay was a crucial battleground, but today it symbolizes peace, with British and American remains interred in the memorial.
