Put-In-Bay History, Mystery, and Scandal - There is much more to Put-in-Bay and South Bass Island than meets the eye.
History - The Hotel Victory at Put-in-Bay, once gained fame as the largest hotel in the world (or at least the largest in America at the time).
Mystery - The rumor mill surrounding the Hotel Victory fire on August 14, 1919 speculated that investors intentionally set the fire to get out from under mounting debts.
Scandal - The Natatorium was 30 feet wide and 100 feet long with a graduated depth of three to seven feet. Fresh lake water filled the pool, as women and men swam in the pool together, a rather scandalous development for the time!
Today it is nothing more than a few sad ruins tucked away behind an Ohio State Park campground on South Bass Island, plus memorabilia scattered throughout places like the Lake Erie Islands historical museum and the forgotten corners of various attics spread throughout the region.
