BAY CITY TEXAS
Bay City is named for its location on Bay Prairie, which is between the Colorado River and Caney Creek. With plans to establish Bay City, David Swickheimer, G. M. Magill, N. M. Vogelsang, and Nicholas King bought 320 acres from D. P. Moore and another 320 acres from the Mensing brothers of Galveston on Bay Prairie in 1894. They promoted the town site and promised a new courthouse if the county government was moved from Matagorda. In September 1894, the voters elected to move the county seat to Bay City and the town, which at the time had no buildings, began construction.
