Benson Ford Ship House Public Tour

We’re extremely excited to tell you about your chance to tour one of the most unique houses in America, right on South Bass Island! Put-in-Bay’s famous Benson Ford Ship House will be open to the public for tours on Saturday, September 13th, from 2 PM-5 PM. There will be a maximum of 300 guests per tour date.

The cost of the tour will be $30, and all proceeds will be going to two charitable causes: 10% going to maintenance for Alfred Parker Park, and the other 90% for creation and installation of a Put-in-Bay sign that will become a PIB landmark in its own right!

Parking on-site is extremely limited, so no cars will be able to access the site. The best options are to take a Put-in-Bay taxi, or if absolutely necessary, a golf cart rental.  We recommend the Island Club Taxi and Put-in-Bay Condos Taxi as great options to get you to and from the event for just $3 a person. The Island Club Taxi phone number is 419-285-5466 and the Condos Taxi is 419-285-2227. You do not need to be staying at these establishments to use their taxi services.

If you can’t make it for this one-day only event, you can at least check out the inside of the Ship House through your screen with this amazing virtual tour! To learn more about the Ship House, check out the blog we wrote about it recently!
