" The smallest county in Ohio with the most history!" Travel the roadways of Lake County and one will find no qualms with the accuracy of this statement. Visitors seeking a historical based experience need only to 'Think Lake County'. Native American sites, nautical sites, Mormon sites, pioneer and early industrialization era structures are a one tank trip away. A U.S. Presidential residence, Civil War sites, and immigrant themed museums are mere minutes apart.
A Progressive Dinner is being held in less than three weeks that will introduce the community to the many sites and historical gems that may be found in Lake County. The evening begins in Willoughby at the Indian Museum of Lake County. After appetizers and some locally grown beverages, attendees will share a dinner experience at the Lake County History Center (the former County Poor House) in Painesville Township. Dessert will be served up in Fairport Harbor. Not only is Fairport celebrating its bicentennial this May, but it is home to two distinct museums. Both the Finnish Museum and Lighthouse and Marine Museum will be open for visitors to browse. This event can accomodate up to 80 guests. Guests electing to travel by bus will receive a narrator led evening into history. Guests may also elect to 'drive it yourself' that evening. Reservations must be made in advance.
A detailed flyer may be found on the Lake County Historical Society website or by stopping by a museum site. One may also contact the LCHS directly at 440-639-2945 for more information.
