A listing of one room schools in Michigan with their locations and some information on these schools from the Bess Britton collection.

Many thanks go to Bess Britton of Decatur, MI who has donated her collection on Michigan One Room Schools to the Webster Memorial Library .  This collection has much information on over 560 Michigan schools, along with artifacts from some of these schools.  This collection may be viewed at the Local History Room at Webster's Library in Decatur, MI.

Many thanks to Toni Benson and her son Daniel  K. Benson II who have typed in this database and submitted it for us.
