The Bucket Shop and Roundhouse Bar History

Since 1873, many revelers have passed through and enjoyed a libation at Put-In-Bay’s  oldest watering hole.  Originally called the Columbia Restaurant, offerings included beer, wine, food and ice cream.  Still, the origins of the Roundhouse Bar name remain unknown.  However, two theories exist.  One of the first owners, George F. Schmidt, had the nickname of Round House Smith.  However, others point to the very shape of the building that sparked the name.  Today, the Roundhouse Bar is owned by the McCann family who purchased it in the 1950s.  They painted the exterior the iconic red it is today. read more
