ONE-ROOM SCHOOLHOUSE RENOVATED INTO HOME: A former one-room schoolhouse renovated into a house has hit the real estate market in Aboite Township.

The home, located at 14318 Aboite Center Road, is known as the 1883 Schoolhouse. It was apart of the Aboite Township Schools, covering District 4 of eight districts. The schoolhouse was built by J.F. Wing & Co. in 1883 and called the Cory School, named after the man who sold the land to Aboite Township, John Cory. Students attended class there until 1938.

The vacant schoolhouse would end up under the ownership of John Popp. According to the current owner, Eric Vanstrom, Popp bought the schoolhouse and surrounding land in hopes of preserving the school because his grandfather had taught there in the early 1900s. He did not have immediate plans to sell when the Vanstorm family was looking for homes around the area.
