Location: Industrial Works, Bay City, MI

Industrial Works, Bay CityThe Industrial Works, later known as Industrial Brownhoist, was located on the east side of the Saginaw River in downtown Bay City. The company made large wreck cranes for railroads throughout the United States and the world. It was perhaps Bay City's largest single manufacturing facility. Greenfield Village, at the Henry Ford, has an Industrial Brownhoist railroad wreck crane which was formally used by the Michigan Central Railroad in the Detroit-Windsor tunnel.
