Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial

Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial
93 Delaware Avenue
Put-in-Bay, OH 43456 419-285-2184

Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial was established to honor those who fought in the Battle of Lake Erie, during the War of 1812, and to celebrate the long-lasting peace among Great Britain, Canada, and the United States. The Memorial, a Doric column rising 352 feet over Lake Erie, is situated 5 miles from the longest undefended border in the world. Perry's Victory Monument is the only international peace memorial in the United States National Park System and rises 47 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York City.

Start your trip out at the Visitor’s Center where you can catch a 15-minute film on how the memorial was constructed, as well as learn more about the War of 1812 and the Battle of Lake Erie.
