Michigan's Historic Schoolhouses

(Local History, Genealogy) Permanent link

When it comes to historic buildings, few generate the level of interest that one-room schoolhouses do. It’s hard to pass one by without taking a second look and wondering what life was like for students who were educated there. It’s also fascinating to see how they have been remodeled and repurposed into homes, shops, and other useful structures. On February 24, the Library will host a program for all of us who love these old buildings - Michigan’s Historic One Room Schoolhouses. Presenter Dianna Stampfler will take us on a photographic tour of schoolhouses throughout Michigan and reveal their history and how many are being used today. Dianna always presents a lively, informative program; and as a resident of southwest Michigan her presentation will include many familiar landmarks. Join us at 7:00 pm on the 24th for a great program, and don’t forget that you can always find useful information about Kalamazoo County rural schools under Education in the All About Kalamazoo History section of our website.

My husband and I love to just drive around with our county maps and see what we can see--one of our more interesting jaunts was finding where the song "Old Rugged Cross" was written or inspired. (That, and finding a traveling circus in a county park over near Hastings or Battle Creek--don't remember!) This program sounds like it will be a lot of fun!
