Bay-Journal pages and Special pages.

We're pleased that you visited Bay-Journal where you can learn about our rich local history which dates back to the early 1800s.

It all began with the founding of "Lower Saginaw" by a corporation composed of several prominent individuals, which later was renamed to "Bay City. By the middle 1860s lumber was beginning to be shipped down the Saginaw River out to the Saginaw Bay to ports like Detroit and Chicago. Within a decadr Michigan became the source for lumber to markets in the East. This brought rapid growth to Bay City, Saginaw and Midland where hundreds of sawmills were erected along the Saginaw River. By the early 1900s the lumber boom subsided and the industrial boom began.
