IMA Property At Potter's Lake

Not only was the Potter's Lake property a piece of the IMA empire (Auditorium, Brookwood Golf Course, Sports Arena, Safetyville), it was also where I lived when attending Davison High School. The IMA property at Potter's Lake also encompassed part of Lapeer County, Michigan.

The IMA property is now a golf course. From what I can figure, the house where I lived when in high school is around the 8th hole.
