James Clements Airport is located at 614 S. River Rd, Bay City. * James Clements Memorial Airport was built 1928-1930. In 1926 the Bay City Chamber of Commerce recognized the economic benefits that could be derived from a local airport and decided to build one and dedicate it to Bay City men killed during World War I. The Aeronautics Committee immediately sought the financial support of industrialist William L. Clements, whose son Ensign James L. Clements had been an aviator during the war and died of influenza in France. Clements agreed to make a substantial donation, provided the facility was named in honor of his son. This site was chosen because it had served as an airfield for fifteen years. The Neo-Georgian Administration Building, designed by local architect Joseph C. Goddeyne, and the hanger were dedicated on July 29, 1930.
