Last week I got to Lakeview a little early for my presentation and I had some time to kill. I went for a drive to see what I could find on a dreary autumn day. Southwest of Lakeview I saw this old schoolhouse hidden in the trees. I am not sure how I manage to come across these places unexpectedly, but I figure I should photograph them before they are lost to history. I looked on an old plat map and it shows a South Baker School. I am not certain it is this school, but maybe.
P.S. I have had a few people ask me about doing a presentation near their hometown. I don’t actively contact places about doing presentations. Most places reach out to me to come and visit. Check with your local historical society or library and see if they have a meeting room or someplace for me to do a slideshow, and I would be happy to come out and give a presentation. If it’s within an hour drive from Saginaw I don’t charge anything. If it’s farther away I would just need a little help for gas money if it’s in the budget.
