Visitor Tips and News About Strange Sculpture - Procession to Hell
March 18, 2012 - the Hellbound were not in the track of the Ides of March Dexter tornado, so they escaped unscathed (or no further scathed). They are, however, currently sporting jaunty red bow ties.
The Mager complex has No Trespassing signs at the parking lot entrances. Unsure how strongly this is enforced. An exiting truck driver did not stop and yell about my car parked in the streetside corner, but I didn't linger.[JJ, 03/18/2012]
Interesting statue, can't help but be curious about its origins.[NicholausLee, 10/16/2010]
The statues are arranged pointing to a small cemetery in the wooded area next to the largest one. Made of what looks like fiberglass, they encountered damage several years ago as vandals or a car accident knocked them over. They now stand righted, but remain damaged.[Dave, 01/21/2010]
My family and I decided to take the scenic route through Dexter on our way to Hell, Michigan. While driving we saw this strange sculpture on the side of the road. It looks to be several formless people marching in a line into the woods. These "people" go from smallest to largest. There is no placard to say what it is for, why it is there or what it is called.
It is on the northwest corner of property apparently belonging to a company called Mager. They were closed so there was no one there to ask about it. We nicknamed it the "Procession to Hell" in honor of our trip to Hell, Michigan.[Chris Kee, 07/24/2009]
We've seen the Radio City Rockettes in similar situations.
