John Mairs owns an electrical business that takes him all over southwest Michigan. A few years ago, something caught his eye in Van Buren County – a road sign for “Tea Pot Dome.”
The sign lies just west of County Road 671 and the Red Arrow Highway, a few miles west of Paw Paw. Mairs says he couldn’t figure out what it referred to.
“My very first thought was it was geographic, but there’s nothing here to support that - pretty flat,” Mairs says.
