Dobbin’s Landing…Just a Walk Away

We did some sightseeing, too, while in Erie at the “Roar on the Shore” motorcycle rally.

We walked through Perry Square, where we found the Oliver Hazard Perry statue. The park was named after Perry, who led American forces in a decisive naval victory at the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812.

We walked by the Erie Art Museum, located at 411 State Street. The museum is a fine example of Greek Revival architecture.

This bronze sculpture known as “Eternal Vigilance” sits at the foot of the Erie Art Museum’s marble steps. The sculpture is the work of local artist John Silk Deckard.

We continued walking down State Street to Dobbin’s Landing. It was a beautiful day. The view across Presque Isle Bay was gorgeous.
