~The Music Box at Houghton Lake (1946-2001) was famous for it's summer dance hall entertainment. Our group of friends would always meet under the tree when we arrived.  This area would be shoulder to shoulder packed with kids dancing, surrounded by ten deep rows of kids watching. Twinkle lites in the trees, blasting. pounding music, and sweaty dancing kids made it teenage heaven.~

The Legend of Sleeping Bear by Kathy-jo Wargin. The single greatest children's book I've ever read. It's about a mother's love and devotion to her two cubs. Cry every single time.

HOUGHTON LAKE, MICHIGAN.... This charming Historical Chapel was built the old fashioned way, by a community effort and can accommodate 35 people. It is available for modern day weddings and other services. Chapels like this one were often the Center of life in the Village and was not only a place of worship but was the social center of the community The Chapel Bell and pews all donated items. During Village Days there is a Sunday morning service in the chapel with traditional Gospel Music.
