Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial
Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial was established to honor those who fought in the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812 and to celebrate the long-lasting peace between Britain, Canada, and the U.S. The memorial, a Doric column, rising 352 ft. over Lake Erie is situated five miles from the longest undefended border in the world. Stop in the visitor's center featuring displays, a video theater, and gift shop. While
the memorial undergoes maintenance and repair, the observation deck will be
unavailable for tours in 2017. Daily ranger programs will be offered for all
ages. Additionally, the park is hosting many special events such as the Put-in-Bay Music Festival June 10. Other planned events include a Maritime Celebration on June 17, Freedom concert and fireworks on July 4, World Ranger Day on July 31, and the signature Historic Weekend event Sept 8-10.
