If you’ve never visited Put-in-Bay, you may be surprised to learn that this petite island is full of lesser-known attractions. It was first frequented by Lake Erie sailors looking to wait out storms, and it has since evolved into a charming community full of activities that tourists can’t resist. While it is perhaps most famous for its involvement with Oliver Hazard Perry in the Battle of Lake Erie, visitors will find that this island is full of surprises… including a charming wooden church.
Who knew that one of Ohio’s oldest churches was hiding in the Lake Erie Islands?
This historic church is a must-see during any visit to Put-in-Bay. Have you ever visited this gorgeous church? Share your photos in the comments, or connect with other Ohio explorers in the Ohio Nature Lovers Facebook Group.
