Sentimental Sunday: City of Sandusky's Founding Honored on a Manhole Cover

Embedded in the sidewalk near the lovely Schade-Mylander Plaza, this manhole cover honors the founding of the city of Sandusky in 1818. A waterfront scene shows a vessel, waves on Sandusky Bay, seagulls, and a structure near the dock, causing us to recall the importance of Sandusky's natural harbor, which enabled the early transporting of necessary goods in and out of our fair city. Click here to read an article entitled "Sandusky, Pioneer Link Between Rail and Sail," by Leola Stewart. This article is archived on the website of the Ohio History Connection. The city of Sandusky will be celebrating its Bicentennial in 2018!
