Saginaw Bay

This bay derives its name from the Sauk Indians who once dwelt on its shores. Adrian Jolliet, on his voyage down Lake Huron's western shore in 1669, first made it known to the white man. In the late 1800's an immense lumber industry flourished in the region. Schooners by the scores daily passed through the bay bringing to the sawmills more logs and hauling off cut lumber. The bay's waters for years also made fishing good business.
