Today, just like in Bay City's past we have a booming downtown.
Old buildings filled with charm dot the main streets of Washington, Madison and Center Avenues. Everything that a successful
"heart" of a city needed could be found here: drug stores, markets, clothiers, restaurants, government offices,
entertainment venues and more. Local architects Pratt and Koeppe were famous for constructing most of the sites seen on this
tour. Albert Kahn of Detroit (the Fisher Building, Cadillac Place, the Belle Isle Conservatory among others) even had a hand
Besides beauty and splendor, these buildings also
hold stories that helped shape our city and county's histories. Join Sam Fitzpatrick for a walking tour of Downtown Bay City
and learn more about the grandeur and importance of these structures.
