Welcome to the

Lakeside Heritage Trail

Explore our history and learn about our roots.

One hundred and fifty years ago, the founders of Lakeside stood on the shores of Lake Erie envisioning a place for the faithful to gather in community. Since then, millions of people have been beckoned to this beautiful, peaceful sanctuary to deepen their connection to Lakeside’s timeless mission…

To enrich the quality of life for all people, to foster traditional Christian values, and to nurture relationships through opportunities for renewal and growth – spiritually, intellectually, culturally and physically – while preserving Lakeside’s heritage.

With the new year, we welcome Lakeside’s 150th Anniversary – a time to honor the past, celebrate the present and look to the future. This exciting Sesquicentennial Celebration connects us to the mission through enriching religious life programs, educational lectures, cultural arts performances and recreational activities.

Lakeside volunteers have constructed Lakeside’s Heritage Trail for the community to explore and learn. The historic pictures are provided courtesy of the Lakeside Heritage Society Archives.    

Lakeside has a rich history over 150 years full of stories and enriching experiences.  To learn more about the history, visit the Lakeside Heritage Society.  The Lakeside Heritage Society offers events and actives where all can explore Lakeside’s 150 years.
