Vintage Views of Cedar Point

Since 1870 local residents and tourists have been enjoying Cedar Point with its beach, attractions, and accommodations. Cedar Point is the second oldest amusement park in North America, especially known for its roller coasters. Enjoy these historic images of Cedar Point from days gone by. Visitors to the Cedar Point Beach in the picture below were dressed quite modestly. The Sea Swing can be seen on the left.

Visitors often brought their own lunch, for a picnic in shaded areas of the park.

Canoeing through the Cedar Point Lagoons was once a popular pastime.

Noah’s Ark and the Flying Skooter were popular attractions from about 1924 to 1954.

The Yankee Bullet was another popular ride.

A peaceful drive home down the Cedar Point Chaussee was a perfect way to end the day at Cedar Point.

The Sandusky Library has several titles which cover the history of Cedar Point, including Cedar Point: The Queen of American Watering Places, by David W. Francis and Diane DeMali Francis, Fun at the Old Cedar Point, by Glenn D. Everett, and Cedar Point Yesterdays, by Charles E. Frohman.
