East Point Historical Documents

courtesy of the Webster Family


George and Mark Webster, descendants of the Lutes and Webster families of East Point, were gracious enough to loan me a large number of historical documents from East Point, from the period 1860-1941. A digital copy of all the documents has been given to the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society.


A few of the documents are shown below. I'll add some more in the future, and if anyone on the island would like to see the entire collection I'll be glad to show them to you on my laptop.

Frances Myers' sale of most of East Point to John Lutes for $1,000
