History is repeating itself, do you want to be a part of it?   
The Queen of the Lake III Restoration project will begin 
with community and volunteers meetings. This sternwheeler will bring back hope and grace for the lake we love & that holds so much history. 
History fact:  Both of the past sternwheelers were built on Buckeye Lake 
and cruised her waters for 20 years.  

The Queen of the Lake III will follow that historic path as well. 

Send us your email address, so we can keep you up on the calendar dates
of activities and work days.

Our Annual Tour this year will follow the idea of a Night Picnic at the Buckeye Lake Historical Museum. Themes will follow the methods used in the picnics of the 50’s and 60’s. Check out the menu and pretend to be at another time and place, the Buckeye Lake Amusement Park.

As of January 2019 there have been 55,212  visitors to the museum, since our opening day in 1998. Come visit the Rocket Ship, play Skee Ball or look over thousands of items from the early to mid 1900's.​ Tuesday-Sunday 1 to 4, Closed Mondays.

Our Society was founded at Buckeye Lake, Ohio in 1995 and the museum opened in 1998. Please stop in and view our huge collection of Buckeye Lake Park memorabilia. Our group covers Perry, Licking and Fairfield counties including the communities of Hebron, Millersport and Thornville, along with Buckeye Lake.
