In the 70s, my parents and I always camped at Spider Lake. On the way up old 131, we passed Reed city, where the man, George Bennard, who wrote the gospel hymm "The Old Rugged Cross" lived. They put a big cross out on the highway and Mom would always wake me up to see it. I thought it was long gone, but it was replaced by a newer cross and moved to a museum devoted to Bennard and his time in Reed City.
