This ¾” thick Chippewa Lake Billboard is hand screen printed on the front. It is part of a four-piece series of buildings called Chippewa Lake Amusement Park, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her eleventh year of business. This series was introduced in 1993 and retired on December 31, 1998.
Started in 1875, Chippewa Lake was the oldest amusement park in the United States The 1920's, 30's, 40's and 50's were the park's glory days and sadly, it closed it's doors in 1978.
Look for our trademark black cat, Casper, on every Cat’s Meow. Handcrafted in our Wooster, Ohio workshop.
