Description


Presque Isle State Park, a peninsula extending seven miles into Lake Erie, attracts four million visitors each year. Since the late 1800s, it has been both an ecological and recreational paradise. It is a place where visitors can enjoy solitude, reflection, and the wonders of nature in addition to the sand and sun. Since 1814, man has been struggling against the forces of nature to protect Presque Isle from the storms that move in off Lake Erie and cause destruction and erosion. Through vintage images gathered from the collections of the author, Erie County Historical Society, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and various local sources, Presque Isle State Park reflects the history and special aura of the park known as a place for all seasons.
