South Bass Island Fun Facts:
It is the third largest island in the Lake Erie Islands, and is part of Put-in-Bay Township. The village of Put-in-Bay is a popular tourist destination during the summer. The island is often referred to as the “Key West of Lake Erie.” Put-in-Bay is served by ferry from nearby Port Clinton and Sandusky. Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial, including Perry’s Monument, commemorating the Battle of Lake Erie is located on South Bass Island, near Put-In-Bay. The island is also the annual host of the Inter-Lake Yachting Association regatta, known as Bay Week.
In the bay of South Bass is Gibraltar Island, home to the Ohio State University’s Stone Laboratory.
One of the world’s largest hotels, the Hotel Victory, opened its 625 rooms to the public in 1892. The four-story hotel featured a one-thousand-seat dining room. However, on August 14, 1919, the giant hotel burned to the ground. Today only parts of the foundations can be seen at the state campground.
Put-in-Bay is the site of Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial commemorating Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry’s September 10, 1813, naval victory over British ships in the War of 1812. Construction of the monument began in 1912 and it opened to the public on June 13, 1915. It is 352 feet (107 m) tall and made up of 78 layers of pink granite, topped with an eleven ton (10 metric ton) bronze urn. Its height makes it the highest open-air observatory operated by the U.S. National Park Service. The remains of six naval officers, three British and three Americans, were interred beneath the floor of the monument’s rotunda.
