"Bessemer and Lake Erie Railroad" by Kenneth Springer is an Arcadia publication, much like the Conneaut Lake and Conneaut Lake Park books.

Conneaut Lake Park
"Conneaut Lake Park", 128 page book, was published as one of the Images of America series from Arcadia. It has tons of pictures and history.
Conneaut Lake/Exposition Park/Bessemer Railroad
During the early 1900’s, many people rode the Bessemer & Lake Erie Railroad to Exposition Park (later named Conneaut Lake Park). Each year the railroad would give them a book about Exposition Park which featured unique pictures of Exposition Park and Hotel Conneaut. Now CLAHS has reprinted two of these books and is offering them for sale. With different pictures and materials, Conneaut Lake/Exposition Park is a great asset for any history or railroad buff!
