Moseley School, Grattan Township, Kent County, Michigan

Location: withheld since this is a private residence.

Moseley School, built in 1915, is now a private residence. It's a beautifully-restored red-brick schoolhouse with original-looking windows on one side and two on the other side replaced with a doorwall to their deck. The roof is a modern red metal roof which will protect the house for years to come. The bell tower is intact, with a school bell inside. A chimney at the rear of the schoolhouse probably vented a pot-belly stove back in the day, and a modern furnace today. Signs above the door identify the schoolhouse as Moseley School, built in 1915, and also as a "Standard School", meaning one which conformed to the highest standards of Michigan one-room schoolhouses of the day. A Historical Plaque beside the front door proudly confirms this identification.
