History of Bay County, Michigan.


E. H. Bassett, of the dry goods firm of Bassett, Seed & Co., has been identified with the business interests of Bay City for more than a score of years. He is a native of New York State, and settled in Bay City in the fall of 1862. The place was then comparatively new, and a few stores here were along Water Street. For a good many years Mr. Bassett was a member of the firm Munger & Co., dealers in general merchandise, who did an extensive business on Water Street. In 1874 Munger & Co. sold out to Messrs. Cooke & Co. In 1877 Mr. Bassett entered business with the present firm of which is the senior member. Their store is at 406 Center Street, and is one of the finest dry goods stores in the city.
