The Greater Buckeye Lake Historical Society​​​

The Queen III Sternwheeler is on the Lake.

​​Hello, Members, Friends and

​Buckeye Lake History Fans


It has been 5 months or so since our country and our lives have changed with the COVID-19.  We have all had to adapt to different ways of being with family and friends, working, schooling of our children and a dozen different other things. We are coping and moving forward and looking out for one another.

The Museum has re-opened.  We rarely have more than 4-6 visitors at a time. It is quiet but the social distancing is working here.  So, if you can get  out plan on a stop at the magnificent world of Buckeye Lake history.  It is worth it.

We plan on some special events as soon as it is safe to gather once again.  So, continue watching our site

for the latest information.

The most asked about thing this year has been our beautiful historic replica The Queen of the Lake III.  She is a wonderful boat and will be ready to tour the lake very soon.   Over 10,000 volunteer hours, thousands of dollars in donations mixed with love and devotion for this special project,

The Dream has become real.

The Museum still needs your donations and support.  We like every other small business in America has been

hurt by the pandemic. 

Give whenever you can.  It is so appreciated.

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. Our group covers Perry, Licking and Fairfield counties including the communities of Hebron, Millersport and Thornville, along with Buckeye Lake.
