Maple Ridge School, Laketon Township, Muskegon County, Michigan

Location: 43.2822, -86.3023, at 1569 N Buys Rd, Muskegon, MI.

Maple Ridge School (Laketon District No 7) was built in 1887. It is a rectangular wood-frame schoolhouse with 3 large windows on the north side and 4 large windows on the south side. A cloak-room protrudes from the front, with a single door in the center and a window on either side. There is a bell tower on the roof but no school bell inside. The bronze plaque, mounted to a large stone in the front yard, states that the school was donated to the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District in 1976 by the Reeths-Puffer Board of Education, to be preserved and to be used by the students of the Muskegon area as a "living history" of a past era, significant in the development of this country.
