The Lake Erie Islands Historical Society, in partnership with other island businesses and non-profits, sponsors and supports through volunteers many great island events during the year on South Bass Island.
We also sponsor our own events such as our annual Island Auction, an annual Art Auction, and an Opening Party and Closing Party for our members, and those interested in becoming members, of the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society.
We could not continue to protect our priceless collection of historic artifacts and offer the general public to view these items and learn about island history without the generosity of our members and volunteers.
We appreciate everyone's continued support.

As we continue to navigate the affects and impact of COVID-19, we will revise our 2021 Calendar of Events with updates on the year's programming. We appreciate your patience.
