The history of Bay City finds its modern roots in the early 1830s when a man named Leon Tromble settled in the area. Considered the first settler, Tromble was the first person to build a log cabin right on the Saginaw River. It was not very long before more folks started coming to the area and named it Lower Saginaw. In 1857, the county line was drawn through Lower Saginaw creating Saginaw County to the south and Bay City to the north. It was at this time that the name Bay City was adopted and, by 1865, Bay City was officially incorporated as a city. Throughout the 19th century, the economy thrived on the sawmill and shipbuilding industry. Shipbuilders working in Bay City constructed many ships that would be used by the United States Navy.
