The Ship Residence

Located on South Bass Island in Lake Erie at Put-in-Bay, Ohio, rests the Owners and Captains Quarters of the former Great Lakes Shipping Boat, The Benson Ford. Originally designed by Henry Ford, the boat was in service for 50 years. In 1986, rather than scrapping the entire vessel, the top front section of the boat (comprised of walnut paneled state rooms, dining room, galley, and passenger lounge) was removed by an Ohio couple. They placed the rescued quarters on a picturesque home lot, transforming them into The Ship Residence.
