ONE-ROOM SCHOOL HOUSE MEMORY PROJECT, ADD A MEMORY TO THIS COLLECTION
                                    Place your memory or the memory of a loved one into this permanent collection.
The VBRGS is seeking memories from people who attended these rural schools in Michigan.  If you attended a rural school, or
have a memory from an ancestor, we would like to archive it for this collection and make it available to other researchers.  This
contribution would be open to the public and could be used in future VBRGS projects.
To contribute a schoolhouse memory or information, donate photographs, make corrections or inquire about Michigan rural
schools contact the Local History Department, by email, at  localhistory@vbdl.org , call 269-423-4771
