Beautifully nestled along five miles of Lake Erie’s wooded southern shore, the City of Bay Village blends the convenience of its west side location with the tranquility of an almost totally residential community. Founded in 1810 by Joseph Cahoon of Connecticut, the City has maintained its New England flavor and its origins both in general architectural and community lifestyle. Bay Village residents are fortunate to have a community rich in recreational and cultural opportunities.

To help capture the feeling of Bay Village on this new website, we asked the community to submit their photos of the city. We received quite a few excellent entries, and one that fit both the spirit of Bay Village and the technical requirements for the site was this beautiful photo of sunset over Lake Erie that appears in the banner images, taken and submitted by Bonnie Carpenter. Thank you Bonnie, and thanks to everyone who submitted photos!
