Visitor Tips and News About Town of Hell
There is a "Hell, Michigan Post Office" in the General Store where, for the price of postage, someone will singe your postcard with a candle and stamp it "Been through Hell." The typical greeting when you walk into the gift shop: "Welcome to Hell! How the Hell are ya? Where the Hell ya from?"[Kitsa, 06/11/2013]
Even Hell has a little church. It's brick red with a lovely blue door and a finial on the steeple that's shaped like a sort of question mark-like curlicue. Its doors were locked, but we peered in the windows and saw that it seats about six. Photos on display in the Screams ice cream parlor (the church is behind it) indicated that there are, indeed, weddings in Hell. Several wedding-related photo-op boards ring the church grounds, heavy on the Hell puns.[Kitsa, 06/07/2013]
Go to Hell hungry, and enjoy a meal at the Damn Site Inn (4095 Patterson Lake Rd) or ice cream at I Scream. These are the only activities in town, so plan to enjoy them.[JoEllen Hothem, 08/24/2011]
The name of the town I visited was Hell, Michigan. There wasn't much to Hell -- a country store and a Halloween/ice cream shop. Neither business had public restrooms, but you could use the port-o-johns on the side of the store.[Melissa Schuster, 10/29/2009]
People in Hell want ice water...
Fun town. The Ice Cream/Gift shop is only open on the weekends during the winter according to the very friendly owner. He told us all about the town, the kinds of visitors and tourists he's had and about one of the morning network tv shows being there. I took my 5 year old, who was spooked by the store, so the owner was nice enough to give her the one ring she wanted. He said he doesn't like little kids to be that scared.
He told me about the ice cream sundaes the kids make in the summer, where all the toppings are arranged in the coffin there, and he showed the kids how to turn water into snow.[Lynn Van Hoose, 02/18/2007]
