Michigan One-Room Schoolhouse Association

Fall Conference

Saturday, September 30th, 9:00 am to 2:30 pm

Onsted, Michigan

The conference will be held at the Onsted Elementary School, 10109 Slee Road, just down the road from the Wooden Old Stone Schoolhouse, (11992 Stephenson Road) whose Association is our host. They have a short film on an oral history project they made, interviewing people who attended one-room schools which will be shown.
The keynote speaker is Dr. John Geisler whose presentation "Native Trials and U.S. 12" will give us an informative and interesting look at the pathways and highways in southern Michigan. Geisler's presentation will cover early trails made by mastodons and early native Americans, to early Michigan roads and the history of one particular road - the Great Sauk Trail - U.S. 12. 
Lunch will be served. The program will include time for members to share their stories and network. A Silent Auction will be held, providing attendees an opportunity to bid on school related items. Items for the auction are welcome.
After lunch, the Wooden Old Stone School (11992 Stephenson Road) will be open for a guided tour by Jackie Freeman and Joy Luck.
