Museum on the move

The Great Lakes Historical Society will be moving their Inland Seas Maritime Museum from Vermilion, Ohio to a new maritime museum to be located on the Black River in the Port of Lorain Resort. Current plans for for the new 40,000+ square foot facility to feature an exciting mix of cutting edge technology and world-class artifacts . The facility will also have docking space for tall ships and other touring maritime attractions. The Society hopes to raise the needed revenue over the next five years.

The new museum would be part of a Las Vegas-style gambling casino to be built on the site of the former Lorain Pellet Terminal. The casino plans would be to build on 5.6 acres that the city will sell to the Eastern Shawnee for $6 million. The tribe-owned-and-operated facility would anchor a major hotel-retail-museum development on the city's prime lakefront property, which will be leased to the Eastern Shawnee, according to a ''Lorain Harbor Resort'' plan announced by Mayor Craig Foltin and Chief Charles Enyart.
