Monterey Center School, Heath Township, Allegan County, Michigan

Location: withheld since this is now a private residence.

Monterey Center School (Heath District No 2) was established in 1874. It's a wooden-frame building with painted off-white, with a greenish metal roof. It retains it's bell tower, but presumably no school bell since the bell tower is sided. It has green painted triangular pediments above the windows. The school has an unusual design, being wider than it is deep. In addition to the single-door front entrance, the front has two large windows, one on each side of the door, to provide light into the classroom, in addition to the two large windows (instead of the usual three or four) on the sides. It is now a private residence, and since I didn't want to intrude on the owners I didn't see the back of the schoolhouse. The design of this school looks similar to Capitol Hill School, Maple Ridge School, Old Stone School, Thayer School, McKinley School, Salisbury School and Bell Tower School.
