Juddville School, Hazelton Township, Shiawasee County, Michigan

Location: withheld since this is now a private residence.

Juddville (previously known as Judd's Corners) was settled in 1853. A log school was built in 1854. The school which stands today, Juddville School (Hazelton District No 3) was built in 1903 (some sources say 1884) and originally had brick facing. Now it is a rectangular wood-frame building with white siding, 3 large windows on each side, a centered front door with a small window on either side of it, a single door at the back, and a bell tower, complete with a school bell inside. The school has several trees right up against its front and one side, making it difficult to photograph well. The school was in use until the 1960s, was sold to Leslie and Irene Turk in 1964, was donated to the Shiawassee County Historical Society in 1997, and is now being renovated as a private residence.
