Tiny Church, big parking lot.

Tiny Church

Here's another mini church for your Tiny Church list. This is the "Wayside Chapel" Can't give you any further information as I was driving home one day, saw it and figured it warranted a photo... As you can see from the picture, it is pretty much in the middle of nowhere. It also appears to have a decent size parking lot for the congregation!

Wayside Chapel - tiny church

On M-61 just outside of McBain from Marion there is a tiny white chapel complete with bell. McBain is just south of Cadillac.
