History and Service
Brimming with history, Midwest charm and beautiful landscapes, Ohio is the place to be for quintessential American small towns and Put-in-Bay is at the top. From arty Yellow Springs – one of the nation’s coolest small towns – to the picturesque island community of Put-in-Bay, you will find local services to help in your travels while having fun.
Located on tiny South Bass Island around five miles from the Ohio mainland, Put-in-Bay is a picturesque island town and popular summer tourist destination when thousands flock to enjoy the town’s quaint restaurants, lively pubs and recreational activities like walleye and perch fishing – no wonder Put-in-Bay is often nicknamed the “Key West of the North”.
History buffs will delight in its historic homes and pivotal role in the War of 1812: Perry’s Victory and International Peace Monument – a 352 foot high Doric column and one of the USA’s tallest monuments – towers over Put-in-Bay’s harbor and commemorates Oliver Hazard Perry’s victory over British forces in the waters off the island.
