One Room Schoolhouse – Ensley, Township Howard City, Michigan

Ensley Team-104th street Howard City-1

Recently, while shooting a new listing for the Ensley Team (a West Michigan Real Estate Company), imagine my delight as I pulled up to the address Google navigated me to! A Historic one room schoolhouse! It is not often I have the opportunity to photograph such a historical piece of property!

I must sadly admit that finding the history of this schoolhouse has been challenging. I would welcome anyone out there that may have some information on the schoolhouse to share what they know here on my blog!

For now, I found a link titled “History and Directory of Kent County, Michigan: Containing a History of Each Township, and the City of Grand Rapids” which is a free google ebook that you can download and read. It appears to be full of some pretty interesting history of the area.

And just in case any of you are wondering,  the schoolhouse sold quickly once it hit the market! I can’t help but wonder who the new owners are!

Heres to “Shuttering” with Happiness~
