     The Historical Society of Bay County opened its exhibit, "Photo Tour of Bay County History," last summer. 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 a donation of $50, you can take home a canvas-wrapped print of your favorite photo, suitable for hanging in your home. 

     Another popular exhibit features the Massalina Family and their influence on life in our community.

     The interactive story of Gideon vs Wainwright continues to educate adults and students on the impact of that landmark decision on America's justice system.
