BAY CITY FREE STATE


Contents

Welcome to Bay City Free State!

Known Kistory

Perched on the shore of Lake Huron, Bay City is known among Anarchs as an important crossroads and meeting place where numerous gangs including Mixed Nutz, the Knights, Space Ghost Coast-to-Coast, and the Sons of Odin keep clubhouses. The constant presence of numerous travelers and visitors makes determining the actual resident population difficult, especially during “the Season” when many Anarchs of all political impulses come here to “getaway.”

This up-and-coming Free State observes several of its own home-grown traditions including a monthly Anarch Social, a salon-like gathering. Various residents and gangs host the Social on a round-robin basis. On rare occasions, the Social is held in the Old Temple, the local Elysium. The conversation at the Social is rarely intense or particularly serious. Rather, the Social provides Anarchs from different groups to put faces to names and generally get to know each other in a casual and congenial atmosphere.

Geography

Bay City is located in the crook of Michigan's "thumb" on fairly flat terrain along the shore of Lake Huron. The town has a population of just over 30,000 people. Bay City is well known in Mid-Michigan for its numerous festivals and celebrations which take place during the summer months. Among them are the River Roar, St. Stan's Polish Festival, the Bay City Fireworks Festival, and the River of Time living history reenactment. Many of these events take place along one or more banks of the Saginaw River, often in Wenonah Park on the east bank or the larger Veterans Memorial Park on the west bank.

General Points of Interest

Independence Bridge, opened in 1976, carries Truman Parkway over the river, replacing the earlier Belinda Street Bridge (built 1893). Liberty Bridge, opened in 1990, connects Vermont Street (on the west side of the river) and Woodside Avenue (on the east side).
