In the farmlands in the center of the state, northeast of Gladwin, stands an old church on a lonely dirt road. The people of the little lumber town of McClure worshiped in the wooden church. It’s about all that’s left of the town named after lumber baron William C. McClure who built a sawmill in 1883. After the trees were cut down it became a sleepy little farming community, and the church, which is now the Lighthouse Prayer Chapel, still marks the spot where the town once stood. I always think of how hard it must have been for the farmers to pull stumps from the fields. Before the giant hydraulic equipment we have today, it must have been extremely difficult backbreaking work.
