Fodor's Expert Review Lake Erie Islands Historical Society
South Bass Island has been a popular tourist destination since Victorian times, and a century and a half of the little island’s history is proudly displayed at this mostly volunteer-run museum. Here you’ll see photos of island life in the 19th century, as well as model ships, old documents and postcards, and educational displays about the entire Great Lakes region. It also screens a short historical documentary for interested visitors. Proceeds from the antiques store on-site help keep the museum afloat.
