The Floating Fuller House

The Bay Village Historical Society celebrates the 130th year of the Fuller House on Sun., July 9, with a talk by developer Robert Corna.

Corna purchased the Bay Village home in 1981 to make way for the Cashelmara Development on Lake Road in Bay Village. He donated the house to Baycrafters, now BAYarts.

The 120-ton house was lowered down the cliff and was sailed 2.5 miles on Lake Erie to its new home in the Metroparks Huntington Reservation. It made front-page headlines around the world. Corna will talk about the history of the house and its famous Lake Erie voyage.

The free porch talk begins at 2:15 p.m., Sun., July 9 at the Osborn Learning Center, 27715 Lake Rd, Bay Village (216) 319-4634. Guests are asked to bring their own lawn chairs. Visit www.bayhistorical.com for additional information.
