This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut Map of Presque Isle in Erie County, Pennsylvania with the following interesting stats carved into it:
Presque Isle served as a base for Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's fleet in the War of 1812.
With the importance of shipping on Lake Erie in the 19th century, Presque Isle became home to several lighthouses and what later became a United States Coast Guard station. In 1921, it became a state park.
A National Natural Landmark since 1967, the park has been named one of the best places in the United States for watching birds.
Interesting factoids: The French term presqu'île, the origin of the park's name, means "peninsula", or, literally, "almost an island". Despite the name, Presque Isle has been an island for brief periods of time after it has been cut off from the mainland several times since 1819.
(Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
