Sweet Memories... Mason County Schools of our Past

The mornings become crisp and cool, a hint of summer's fading and fall's arrival, dew so heavy in the tall grass that your feet are soaked before you reach the road. Grasshoppers flying out of harms way, and the birds are singing as children make their way down the dirt roads to the one room school houses to learn their 3 R's. These pages are dedicated to the one room school houses, the schools of Mason County Michigan, the communities, industries, and people who called this home.

Browse through a time long past, find your family maybe looking back at you from the old photos.

Feel free to download and print the images for your own enjoyment.

The images of our past do not belong locked away in the confines of an old file cabinent, or a shoebox in a closet. We will host the history and images of Mason Counties past. If you have photos you wish to share send them along.
