The Logan County History Center celebrated Indian Lake history with a “Salute to Indian Lake” open house on Sunday, April 7th in honor of the 100th anniversary of the opening of Sandy Beach Amusement Park on Decoration Day (Memorial Day), 1924. Exhibits throughout the Museum highlight the amusement park and other aspects of the Indian Lake area’s history from its time as the hunting and fishing grounds of American Indians, to its days as a reservoir for the canal system, to the present. In addition, we have refreshed the exhibits in the Indian Lake Room with many of the wonderful photographs we have of Indian Lake in our archives. We partnered with the Indian Lake Area Historical Society with many of the exhibits.

The open house also featured a new exhibit entitled “Natural Phenomena in Logan County” in anticipation of the Total Solar Eclipse that occurred on April 8th. It was the first total solar eclipse to pass over this part of Ohio since 1806!


All donations received at the open house were donated to the Logan County United Way for the Tornado Relief Fund.
