Hell, Michigan - Town of Hell
The town of Hell is counting on revelers to show up this Tuesday,
June 6, 2006, to celebrate the devilish calendar convergence of
6-6-6. According to local news reports, Hell's mayor has loaded
up his souvenir shop with 666 merchandise -- t-shirts, coffee mugs
-- and stocked only 666 of each item.
There will be a costume competition and live music, and the town
also promises to have the Gates of Hell operating over at the
playground. While they're hoping for fun-loving crowds, they don't
anticipate any more than the usual pecentage of devil worshippers
Hell has endured an eternity of puns and japes at its expense --
at least since 1841, when it was named. Tipster Art Spang recalls:
"I proposed marriage to a lady friend -- she replied that it would
be a cold day in Hell before she accepted. So, on January 9, 1967
we motored from Ann Arbor to Hell -- and it was cold!"
Hell, Michigan - A Cold Day In Hell
Meterologists often reference the temperature in Hell, Michigan...
they LOVE to mention that it is a "cold day in Hell." There is a
post office substation in the convenience store and they will remail
letters for you with the official "Hell" cancellation of the stamp.
This service is apparently popular around mid-April when some folks
have their tax return forwarded from Hell. You must attach the
appropriate postage to the article to be remailed and then place
the item to be remailed in another larger envelope and mailed to
"Postmaster, Hell, MI" with the appropriate zip code and postage
on the container envelope.
Hell, Michigan - The Town of Hell
A small town named Hell complete with a gift shop, beer store, post
office and a bar. Favorite with both bikers and vacationing famlies,
once a year there is a "Run thru Hell" fund raising run/walk. In May
it's the "Hell Buzzard Fest" with music, food and art show. Nearby
state park with camping.
Hell, Michigan - Go to Hell, Michigan
You CAN buy bats. Then you can take them OUT of hell. And the little
grocery store sells those nasty twinkie products called "snowballs" so
you can buy them for friends and make the obvious joke again there.
Also, you and a friend can put your head in those neat painted plywood
boards so it looks like one of you is satan, and the other is a victim
of satans grasp. This is great for anyone who loves to pretend to be
satan. Also, for the rest of your life you can say "been there, done
that, bought the T-shirt" to anyone who tells you where to go.
Patterson Lake Road, SW of Pinckney. US 23 to Exit 54. Follow M-36 through
Hamburg and Pinckney. When you reach downtown Pinckney, look on your left
for the sign to Hell. Follow the signs, you can't miss it. The town is
roughly 1/2 hour from Ann Arbor, 45 minutes from Flint, just over an hour
from Detroit, and 1 1/2 hours from Toledo.
