Lynn Haven Heritage

Bay County has a rich history and it's being brought back to life-thanks to citizens and members of the Lynn Haven Heritage Committee.

The committee presented 30-Heritage Markers Friday morning to city leaders and community members.

The presentation ceremony took place at the site of the statue that commemorates the Union soldiers who served in the Civil War. In fact the 86-year-old statue received one of the historical markers too. It's the only statue honoring Union forces south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Lyn Hindesman, Chairperson of the Heritage Committee says the group wanted to mark the landmarks and historical buildings so everyone can learn about the community's rich history.

The committee was formed last July. It's working with the Bay County Historical Society to recognize more than one hundred sites through out the county.
