In southern Michigan near Onsted is an old stone schoolhouse. It is built with fieldstone but it is known as the Wooden schoolhouse because it was built in 1850 by Reverend Robert Wooden. The school was used for over a century until it closed in 1955. By 1979 it was in such bad condition the township condemned it and it was slated for demolition. A group of citizens convinced the township to deed the historic stone schoolhouse to the newly formed Wooden Old Stone School Association. The group restored the schoolhouse in 1989 and it remains standing today as one of the oldest schoolhouses in Michigan.
