The Battle of Lake Erie was one of the most significant naval battles during the War of 1812. Dedicated to Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, the Perry Monument stands at 352 feet tall and can be found on Presque Isle. It is a memorial that celebrates the peace between Britain, Canada and the United States that followed the war.
In 2006, a 500 pound piece of granite fell off of the monument, leaving a large crater in the plaza. After a structural assessment, SOPREMA products were applied to the monument. SOPRALENE® Flam 180 products were used for the base and cap ply and ALSAN® Flashing was used for waterproofing.
