The water has always been integral to Bay City, Michigan. The city is located among forests and marshlands near the "thumb" of Michigan, where the Saginaw River empties into Lake Huron. The city began as a small trading post for trappers but quickly grew when lumberers arrived and mills were established along the Saginaw River. The ship-building industry thrived from the late-1800s through World War II, and signs of the city's maritime past can still be seen today.

Bay City has a population of 34,000 and is the county seat of Bay County. It is the largest municipality in the county and is a center of shopping, business, government and culture.


The manufacturing, retail, and services sectors make up nearly three-quarters of all the industry in Bay City. The economy is supported by nationally known companies, such as General Motors, Dow Corning, S.C. Johnson and Dow Brands. Other major employers are Bay Medical Center, Delta College, Monitor Sugar Company and Saginaw Valley University.
