Location: 42.46447, -82.96267, at 15500 East 9 Mile Road, Eastpointe, MI.

Erin-Warner Fractional District No 2 School, popularly known as Halfway School, served children in Erin and Warren Townships from 1872 to 1921. Beginning in 1838, German farmer Christian Gerlach held classes in his home. During the 1840s a log building served as a classroom. In 1850 a red frame school was built. In 1872 the red school was replaced with this structure, built facing Grove Road at Nine Mile. It was called Halfway School because it was located in the village of Halfway, midway between Mt. Clemens and Detroit. In 1921, the school was closed when a new brick building, the Erin School, was constructed, and this building was moved to the southeast corner of Nine Mile Road and Gratiot Avenue and used as a warehouse for Kaiser Fuel and Supply. The East Detroit Historical Society acquired the school in 1984, returning it to within 60 feet of its original site and restoring its 19th century appearance.
