On August 18th, visitors to Put-in-Bay will have the opportunity to check out the interior of an amazing PIB landmark and one of America’s most unique homes. The Benson Ford Ship House, once a freighter owned by Henry Ford, cut in half and converted into a home on the shore of South Bass Island, is a history buff’s dream. And for one afternoon, tours will be available for $40, with the proceeds raising funds for a couple of charitable island causes.
How to get tickets to the tour:
You can find a link to purchase tickets here as soon as sales go live.
If you plan to attend, please be aware that parking on-site is essentially non-existent, and event organizers ask that you take a taxi, or as a last resort, ride a golf cart down as opposed to a car.
