A New View of City Hall

The recent demolition on Washington Avenue has given us the opportunity of seeing the south side of City Hall from a new perspective. This view has seldom been available since the building was built from 1894-7. The tower is shown on the Sanborn fire insurence maps to be 167 feet tall. Visitors can go about 2/3 the way up the tower where they can see the Zilwaukee Bridge on I-75. This is a favorite on the tours offered to school children by the Bay County Historical Museum which is located directly behind City Hall in this view.
