We are amazed to have come into access of some historic photos taken in Bay Center dating back to the late 1800′s and early 1900′s. Creating this page to catalog the historic photos online. We don’t have the luxury of actually possessing any of the photos, but the photos were shared with us by their owners, and we were given permission to copy them (scan them into computer) for use online and to preserve online some history of Bay Center.
