Cities & Communities

 

One of the most prosperous communities in Liberty County at the end of the nineteenth century was Bay View, located about 16 miles northwest of Hinesville near the Crossroads community. It had a post office, a public school, a Masonic Lodge, two Baptist churches, a general store operated by Henry Levi, and a cotton gin owned and oper­ated by John Smiley.

 

There was no trace of Bay View left by 1940.
