Our October program set the tone for Halloween in Bay County.  We are grateful to local genealogist, writer and member Beverly Nield for a discussion of her book, "Haunted Panama City".  Books can be purchased at the Bay County History Museum.

The Historical Society of Bay County opened its latest exhibit, "Photo Tour of Bay County History," during the summer of 2022. This display leads the viewer through years of people, places and events in Bay County by using many of the vast number of photographs archived at the Bay County Library and in private collections.  Come in and look for your ancestors!

For the donation of $50, many dramatic photographs are available to the public as  wrapped-canvas decor suitable for hanging in your home or office. Also available, for the donation of only $5, is a selection of photos mounted as magnets.
