Complete information for planning your trip to Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial is now on National Park Planner!

Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial is located on South Bass Island in Lake Erie. Commonly called Put-In-Bay (which is actually the name of the main town), the island is reached from the Ohio mainland by private boat, public ferry, or airplane. The memorial commemorates United States Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry’s victory over the British navy in the September 10, 1813, Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812 and the subsequent 100 years of peace between the United States and Great Britain following the end of the war.

Visitors can take an elevator to an observation deck near the top of the 352-foot memorial, watch a film about the Battle of Lake Erie, and browse exhibits in a small museum inside the Visitor Center. Rangers offer various lectures and historic weapons demonstrations, and special events such as the Battle of Lake Erie Anniversary Celebration are held throughout the summer.
