The Greater Buckeye Lake Historical Society​​​

There is volunteerism in the air around the Queen of the Lake III tour boat.  Over 35 people attended the first training and informational meeting.  They will learn to be a Pilot and Crew on the Museum’s long awaited sternwheeler.  Some familiar faces and lots of new faces.   Classes will be held 8 weeks to train anyone who wants to volunteer to work on the boat.
If you are interested in volunteering, contact the Museum.

First docks in, on the new dam, built on the North Bank of Buckeye Lake.

The Queen III Sternwheeler is on the Lake.

In 2018 the Museum followed the idea of a Night Picnic at the Buckeye Lake Historical Museum. Themes followed the methods used in the picnics of the 50’s and 60’s. The menu was a Fish Fry and pretended 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.
