This old schoolhouse near Ionia is believed to be the oldest schoolhouse still standing in Michigan. The Sessions School was built in 1847 with local fieldstone by Alanzo Session, a New York school teacher who moved to the Ionia area. He built the school on his property to educate the local children. Session’s house is gone, but the old schoolhouse still stands in the northern part of the Ionia State Recreation Area.
