Quotes:
Bay City -- 50,000 people living near the point where the Saginaw River runs into Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron -- was the place where the lumber of Michigan passed through on its way across the Great Lakes to become the houses of America from New York City to every settlement along the Mississippi River.
