Frost (Lafayette #5) School, Lafayette Township, Gratiot County, Michigan

Location: 43.30626, -84.42944, at 709 N Barry Rd, Wheeler, Michigan, southwest corner of Barry Rd and St Charles Rd.

I can't find any information on Frost School, also called Lafayette #5, except that it's now privately owned. The bell tower is intact but empty. There are two front doors, probably one for boys and one for girls. The placement of the chimney suggests the pot-belly stove was in the front of the schoolroom, against the vestibule wall.
