Back to school, kids!!

Not too many of these still exist. This one room schoolhouse sits behind Warren Woods Tower High School on Bunert Rd just north of 696. Back in 1875, August and Mine Bunert sold land to the Warren School District and this building dates back to then. It is maintained by the Warren Historical Society. It last held classes in 1944 and has the distinction of being the longest serving one room school house of the city. It's open Sunday, October 4th from 1-4pm. Have you ever stood in such a structure? Now's your chance! Most of Michigan's children return to school today.... a big welcome back! "Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself." ~John Dewey
