    Driving Directions

    The massive 352-foot tall Perry’s Monument can’t be missed. It is located on the south side of State Route 357 on the eastern edge of Put-in-Bay, on South Bass Island. Parking is available near the base of the tower. The museum is on Delaware Avenue, just south of State Route 357 and west of the tower.

    What to Look For

    This 352-foot tall tower cannot be missed; it is the dominant feature of the island and can be seen from great distances. The tower was completed in 1915, and is owned and operated by the National Park Service. An outstanding visitor's center, opened in 2002, lies just west of the tower. From there, one can get a perspective of all of the islands in the area, including Pelee Island in Canadian waters to the north. The park encompasses almost 24 acres, and the grounds are always worth birding, especially in migration. Located at 93 Delaware Avenue in Put-in-Bay.
