Grew up in Saginaw Twp., Sister now lives across the road from the Dice road cemetary. We used to go out there as kids, to scare girlfriends, in the mid 80's. Until we ran into a group of adults around a fire at the turn around clearing at 2 in the morning. Never been there since. The Lone road church was torn down in the late 80's or early 90's. Been there, too. The one at Bintz's Apple mountain is NOT the Lone road church, it is an old schoolhouse that was moved from the corner of State and Midland roads. It was right next to the old brickyard house on the corner. (Last I knew, there was a small building in it's place, right at the edge of the parking lot. My HS friend's Dad ran Gridley Music in the brick house, and his son Tom sold windsurfers out of the smaller building.) My aunts and uncles went to school there. It was dressed up to look like a church after it was moved. This is 100% accurate, as my Dad, (still living) had a business just east of Midland on State for 50 years, and lived next to where he built the business, for years with his parents. I saw the post about the Lone road church, and joined this site specifically to correct the info given.
Hey my name is Charles. I grew up in Chesaning, if anyone knows where that is (about 20 miles from Saginaw). I had read all of this thread a while back, but never joined. I have always wanted to go out there, but never did. I used to work in midland and live in Chesaning, taking freeland rd. most of the way and passing by dice (I think), all the time, but never knew. Wow.
Anyways, anyone still wanting to go out there sometime, maybe when it's still a little light out and it just creeping on dusk (yea, I know the pun), lol. Let me know.
