Bay County surrounds the Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron in Michigan's "Thumb" area. Ottawa and Chippewa Indians occupied the area. Leon Tromble, a trader, was the first white settler. Lumbering was good for the economy. As lumbering declined shipbuilding and sugar beet production took over. Pinconning, once a lumbering town, is famous for its cheese. Today commercial and manufacturing companies play an important role. Today, Bay County has manufacturing, such as auto parts, machinery, cement, steel and agriculture, also a great recreational area for boating, fishing, swimming and other water sports.
