In the small town of Bliss in northern Michigan stands this beautiful white church. The historical marker proudly posted in front of it gives some of the history of this old building. It reads:
The congregation of the East Bliss United Brethren Church was organized in 1880. During the pastorate of the Reverend Edward McFarland, this Carpenter Gothic style church was erected. It was dedicated on May 4, 1903. The congregation flourished until 1923, then declined. Financial difficulties forced it to disband in 1949. Former members purchased the church from the United Brethren Conference in 1965 and renamed it Bliss Pioneer Memorial Church. Memorial Day and fall homecoming services are held in it annually.
If you are wondering the town of Bliss is between Mackinaw City and Cross Village and it’s south of Wilderness State Park. It has an old general store and is a nice stop while out sightseeing.
