Coon School, Berlin Township, Ionia County, Michigan

Location: withheld since this school is still in use.

Coon School (Berlin District No 3) was established in 1866, and is still in operation as a school in 2018. It's a wood-frame schoolhouse with medium-sized windows all the way around (except maybe in the back). There is a bell tower with a school bell inside it. It looks like the building has been added onto over the years, but to me, the bell tower looks like it's over what would have been an addition rather than what looks more to be the original road-facing rectangular schoolhouse. There is a playground on the left side of the school.
