I came across this while driving last weekend. If I remember correctly, it's on the north shore between McRae Rd. and Lighthouse Point.

Another angle:


It looked to me to be some sort of furnace or boiler?

If memory serves correctly, this is the remains of an old lumber mill. I remember reading something about it in a history of Bois Blanc Island somewhere. Might have been the site which publishes the Bob-Lo Tatler. I have a picture of it too with my family.

I have seen it too. I think it is some kind of underground storage tank. Ask Ray Plaunt, if he doesn't know than he will make up something that you may or may not believe.
