This venue’s history started in 1875 as the Lyman Brothers Boat Builder company. They produced the Lyman boat after establishing their boat yard near Cleveland, Ohio. In the late 1920s the brothers renamed their company to Lyman Boat Works and relocated to the venue’s current location in Sandusky. The factory initially produced small sailing and rowing vessels, but by the mid-20th century was churning out custom sail and power boats. Production finally ceased in 1973 as the demand for wooden boats disappeared. Lyman Harbor opened in 2002 as an event venue under new ownership, and has been welcoming sailors and celebrators ever since.

It is nice to work with a "Local" business. You really do have the best view on Sandusky Bay! We are looking forward to the summer bridal show.
I've been to a few weddings at Lyman Harbor over the years. This is a beautiful venue. Located right on the water, you really couldn't ask for a better view. I'd highly recommend this venue for your special day!
