           elcome to the Historical Society of Bay County  (HSBC) website. Organized in 1936 to preserve the rich heritage of the                         area, the society sponsors a monthly meeting and lecture series featuring talks on topics of historical significance to the                   area. In 2014, the society opened the Bay County History Museum in order to share collected artifacts, photographs and                   documents with the community. Exhibits related to Bay County’s past are presented throughout the year.
           The public is invited, regardless of membership and at no cost to enjoy both the lecture series and the Museum.
