In 1874 a shipyard and dry dock was built at the foot of Atlantic, just west of the Essexville boundary line, by Hubbard Church and S. J. Tripp. It operated under numerous owners until in the 1890s it became known as the Bay City Dry Dock and Shipyard, under ownship of James and James E. Davidson. This for years was a sister enterprise to the Davidson Shipyard on the West Side, which today is the expansion acquisition area of the Veterans Memorial Park. The Bay City Dry Dock tract was bought by the city some years back for location there of the municipal sewage disposal plant.
