This is a very historic monument that is unfortunately under renovation. It is very awesome to see but a bit disappointing since it is closed. We did go to the top some years ago so definitely a must do when the renovation is done.

The monument is the best way to see the island. It towers above the attractions giving visitors a "bird's eye" view of the surronding area. Visitors transit via elevator so taking the stairs is not necessary. I recommend this site first to get the "lay...More

Nice piece of art setup tall that can see from far. Good surrounding with many shop for visitor to hangout and you also can choose to walk around to enjoy the lake view and feel the wind flow.

The monument was closed for repairs, but the outside is gorgeous. It was an interesting story as we had never heard about battles of the Civil War being fought on Lake Erie and the involvement of the islands.

This was closed for renovations, which is disappointing because it looks fantastic. The view from here was incredible. I'm sure it will be amazing once the renovations are completed.

The War of 1812 doesn't get a lot of attention in the USA and the naval battles of the war seem to get the least of what attention is paid. This historic site does a good job correcting that. A short film gives an overview...More

Unfortunately we were not able to go in the monument because it is being restored but the visitor's bureau next to it is worth seeing. There are displays and a movie to explain Perry's part in the War of 1812 and its importance.

Yes as long as they're on a leash but you can't take them inside the monument. We always take the Miller Ferry from Catawba Island as you can take your dog on it + it's much cheaper than the Jet Express. I've been to... More
