Tiny Church - The Wayside Chapel

This little Wayside church is across the street from a vineyard. The church doesn't smell the best, and the donations box has been ripped out of the wall, but people from all over have been here. The people who signed the guest book before me were from Italy.

It has four pews that fit about one person. It was a nice tiny church just about 5-10 miles south of the Giant Cherry Pie in Charlevoix on US 31. Worth the little extra travel.

Tiny Church

Another of these tiny churches can be found in Michigan on US 31 just north of Torch Lake and south of Petosky (named for our state stone). Marriages are often performed there. A guest book shows visitors from all over the world every year.
