HISTORIC MICHIGAN: Jackson County’s Old One-Room Schoolhouses
How many times have you been driving down some Michigan road and you spot a structure or home that looks like an old one-room schoolhouse? More than likely, it WAS one a long time ago.
Michigan is known for it's literally THOUSANDS of one-room schoolhouses over the past three centuries.....and there are plenty of them still standing. The ones that remain are either abandoned & deserted or turned into homes, township halls, museums, churches, etc.
The photo gallery here shows you a baker's dozen (13) old one-room schoolhouses still in the Jackson area: Jackson, Brooklyn, Grass Lake & Spring Arbor. Some are homes, museums, churches...and some are unrecognizable. Some are located in the Irish Hills, which - I know - isn't QUITE in Jackson County but Jacksonians have always thought of the area as part of Jackson.
Take a look at these 13 old schoolhouses and please feel free to add some info on any of 'em. Again, a big THANK YOU to all who have seen fit to restore and preserve these classic, treasured structures.
