Bay County, Michigan

Bay County, Michigan

Bay County is aptly named as it surrounds the Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron. Situated at the upper base of Michiganís "thumb," this area has been a major geographical focal point with respect to the Great Lakes. In the past, this has included visits by key historical figures such as Champlain and Marquette when the area was still being developed. The Saginaw River empties into the Bay at Bay City, and has played a major role in the Countyís history and development. It was used to float lumber to Bay City in the late 1800ís where it could then be shipped. Later, it became a major industrial port for shipbuilding, steel and agriculture, (including sugar from sugar beets, which the area is also known for). Today, Bay County continues to play a major part economically in various and diversified areas of manufacturing, such as auto parts, machinery, cement, steel and agriculture. It also remains a prime recreational area for boating, fishing, swimming and other water sports.
