Sentimental Sunday: G.A. Boeckling Building on Sandusky's Waterfront

Now home to the Office of Coastal Management, ODNR, this building was constructed in the late 1920s to serve  as the winter headquarters for G.A. Boeckling, the president of the Cedar Point Pleasure Company from 1897 until his death in 1931. The building has Spanish features, including the red tile roof and arched windows. Aquatic symbols adorn the sides of the building which face towards the east and the south.

Today tourists can board the Jet Express ferry which is adjacent to the Boeckling building. Passenger ferries have been transporting visitors to Cedar Point and the Lake Erie Islands for many years from this location.

That's such a beautiful building, Dorene. I love the red tile roof, the arches, and the architectural details. It's great that it's been preserved.

Thanks so much for stopping by Nancy! I am always amazed at the beauty in the old buildings around my home town!
