When Cable TV Offices were in the Boeckling Building

From the early 1970s until 2000, the historic Boeckling building, at 105 West Shoreline Drive, was the home of cable TV in Sandusky. The business, originally known as North Central TV, Inc., later became Buckeye Cablevision, and now Buckeye Broadband. 

This building was constructed in 1928 to serve as the winter administrative offices of the Cedar Point Resort Company. It became known as the Boeckling Building, named after G.A. Boeckling, then the President and General Manager of the Cedar Point Resort Company. The Boeckling Building has Spanish features, with a red tile roof and arched windows. Aquatic symbols adorn the sides of the building which face east and south.

In recent years, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Office of Coastal Management has had its offices at this location. Future development plans are in the works for this grand building.
