Heritage Homesteads

Heritage homesteads represent a unique visual record of a community's history. One of the largest localized collections of vintage homesteads are those along Center Avenue in Bay City, which were built by early lumber barons and industrials of the 1800s and early 1900s. However, the greatest number of heritage homes are found in the old neighborhoods of a community, where they are not often seen by the general public.
