A Cool Architectural Find

A surprising find in Bay City Michigan - 
the City Hall! 


This building is like a castle and was built in 1894. 


The crazy thing is, 
you can just walk in and start taking pictures. 
Try that in Philly and you'll get arrested! 


I felt uncomfortable doing that 
so I looked for someone to ask. 
There was no one around...no reception...no security. 

 

I finally found a payment office and asked, 
"Sure, take all the photos you want." 
Wow. 


The clock tower is free to tour on your own as well.  
From there you can get a bird's eye view of the 'city.'  
Which is hardly a city. 


If you like architecture, 
definitely tour this place. 

301 Washington Ave, Bay City, MI 48708

  1. I never tried to go in Philly City Hall, thanks for that tip. You found a polished gem, what fantastic details! It seems eerily quiet.

  2. I think this might top the list of your most amazing FINDS.. and part of the amazing is it is empty and you could take pics... I can't even pick a favorite. I LOVE THEM ALL.

  3. Oh my gosh, I kind of skirted around Bay City when I was that way in September. But...if I ever get back over there, I want to tour both places!

  4. Oh my gosh, of course you can walk right in and snap photos! I lived in Bay City for a couple of years, (I was born and raised in Michigan) and Bay City is quaint! The city hall is exceptional and much like the ones in Minnesota where I live now. You can walk in to these small town city halls and court houses and snap photos here too!
