Old Bailey School House in Harrisville
School bells are ringing today for most Michigan students and the Old Bailey Schoolhouse up in Alcona County is a reminder of what learnin' was like a century ago when this one was built. Norway pines were used to construct this one room structure for the children of the logging crews and it was heated with a coal stove. Formerly located west of Mikado Township, it was taken apart and reput together on the Sturgeon Lighthouse grounds near Harrisville for safer keeping. Have you ever hand pumped water before?
