Property: Gunn School House, 2009 S. Washington Road, Delhi Township

Owner: Holt Public Schools

Assessed value: $0

Ever followed Washington Avenue south — way south, past Holmes and Jolly roads, past the point where it transitions to a road south of I-96? You should. 

At the terminus of Washington at Holt Road stands this fine example of an early Ingham County one-room schoolhouse. Its character-defining features include the arched double-hung windows, gable roof, center entry and cupola. Decorated with an Ingham County Historical Marker, this red brick and wood shingle structure was built in 1886. It replaced a structure of more humble construction: a log school. 

Take a trip to Delhi Township, step back in time at the one-room schoolhouse and then visit Holt High School just down the road. Marvel at how far and fast educational facilities have transitioned in less than 60 years.
