This building served as Cedar Point's winter offices from 1928 and after for Mr. Boeckling, the entrepreneur who first developed the resort into an amusement park. Because the Bay freezes in the winter, this site offered a convenient location to conduct the Park's business in the off season.

This structure is a fine example of amusement park architecture. The Spanish motif and the aquatic symbols carved in the window keystones are interesting embellishments to the exterior.

Sanduskians fondly remember the "G.A. Boeckling," which ferried thousands of park vistors who had arrived at the foot of Columbus Avenue by train or automobile.
