and return to the Music Box at Houghton Lake, Michigan.

The Music Box was a teen dance hall located at Prudenville on Houghton Lake, Michigan’s largest inland lake. The hall opened over the 4th of July holiday in 1946 and remained open continuously into the early 1980s. In the early 80s it, rather mysteriously, closed and was closed until 1999 when it reopened on weekends for a few short seasons through 2002 with nostalgia nights for the “alumni” and one evening per weekend dedicated to a new generation of young people. Then, after the 2002 season, the Box closed again, permanently this time. Founder and owner Lee Kelly had the building demolished in 2004. The story of the Box, its mysterious closure in the 80s and 90s, and reopening in 1999 can be found in The Box link below.
