Museum Day was hosted by the Bay County History Museum located at 133 Harrison Ave. A mock Archaeological Dig staged for youngsters let them dig, sift, and find an artifact. Everyone was awarded a Centennial Coin in addition to their "find". Our sponsors made it all possible. Thank You to Appliance Center, C & G, Trigo, Indigo Hotel, Harrison's, History Class Brewing Co. and El Weirdo Taco.
