Inside Grandville's one-room schoolhouse

GRANDVILLE, Mich.— The lot on 44th Street just west of Wilson Avenue is now occupied by Grandville Bible Church, but 29 years ago, it was home to a one-room schoolhouse.

Grandville’s #10 School was built in 1887. The president of Grandville’s Historical Commission says the one-room schoolhouse served kindergarten through eighth grade students until 1958.  Several churches also got their start in the #10 School.

In 1984, the #10 School was moved to Heritage Park near Canal Avenue and 44th Street, where it stands today.  In the spring, students from nearby school districts visit the schoolhouse to experience what education was like in 1887. 

You can take the same field trip June 29; the Grandville Historical Commission will be hosting a public open house of the schoolhouse from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Members of the historical commission will be on hand to answer questions, and souvenirs will be available for purchase.
