Cedar Point History

Today Cedar Point is known for record breaking roller coasters and some of the most intense thrill rides in the world; however, this was not always the case for our beloved park. It once was a quaint beach resort known for the large groves of cedar trees that outlined the peninsula. Dating all the way back to 1870, Cedar Point first started as a bathing beach with small attractions and gradually turned in the Cedar Point we know today.

It’s tradition of being an old-fashion park and having the latest amusement rides makes Cedar Point unique from most parks. Today over three million people, from around the globe, visit Cedar Point every year finding themselves surrounded by it’s collection of roller coasters, rides, history, and natural beauty. This once tree covered peninsula is now one of the largest and most successful amusement parks in the world.

It is our mission at The Point Online to preserve and share as many artifacts from Cedar Point’s diverse history with the world. Our archives include postcards, brochures, banners, glasses, letters and so many more one-of-a-kind items. We hope you will enjoy our collection as we share a small portion of it online.
