We walked through Conneaut Lake Park to see the remains of the Dreamland Ballroom and to see how the Park appears after two summers of not opening. The Dreamland Ballroom once hosted many famous performers, including Perry Como and Doris Day. In February, 2008, the Ballroom burned to the ground in an overnight fire. The fire damage was obvious all around the area where the Dreamland Ballroom once stood.
This light post is across the midway from the Dreamland Ballroom site. Those were once globe lamps! The glass has completely melted on the side that faced the fire. You can even see the outline of the lightbulbs under the melted glass.
