Bayview History

The third part of a four part history of Bayview, published by the Spokesman-Review will appear June 27, Sunday. This segment will cover the war years, 1941-1945. The establishment of Farragut Training Base, the interaction between the base and the cutting in half of the town as eminent domain was applied. The other side of the coin, is that Bayview residents of the time were deeply mired in the Great Depression until jobs came along with the construction of the Base. Check it out next Sunday.

Don't forget Bayview Daze is just around the corner, as is Summer. ... At least that is what the weather guessers promise. July 3-4-5 will be the event with Saturday, July 3 with the most activities. The parade, show & shine, street fair and fireworks will all be Saturday.
