Survey of Michigan

One-Room Schoolhouses

It is estimated that at one time there were over 7,200 one-room schools in Michigan, and approximately 7,000 of those have been found and documented on our website by Michigan One Room Schoolhouse Association (MORSA) founding board member Suzanne Daniel. Our goal is to continue her work and find them all.

 

Please, feel free to search for the schools you know and to search for schoolhouse museums.
