Known more recently as Juddville, Judd’s Corners a few miles north of Owosso was first settled in 1853 when Connecticut native John Judd purchased 400 acres of land encompassing this area from the Hazelton brothers, who owned much of the township. A log school was erected in 1854, where Judd’s eldest daughter, Jane, taught. Over the next two decades a thriving community developed. In 1879, Judd’s Corners received a post office. By 1881 the village had a sawmill, blacksmith shop, general store, a creamery and two churches. Population, which peaked in the mid-1880s at about 175 people, began declining by the 1900s. The school that survives today, built in 1903, was originally faced with brick. The school and the Adventist and Methodist Episcopal churches are reminders of a once-thriving community.
I Enjoy doing this website but it takes up a lot of gas and other expenses. I don’t want to fill it full of advertising, and I am not funded by anyone or any organization. Your Support would really help me out to continue doing this website as an independent artist, so I hope you will check out my shirts that are on sale this weekend HERE,if you want one I probably won’t have shirts on sale for a while so I can get back to taking pics and researching and writing stories.
