Gardener School

1866 One Room School House Still Part of Education

When Gardener School first opened in 1866, it was a typical one room school house with a bell tower on top. Today, though it has been moved to a Buchanan farm, the white clapboard school still is a part of educating Berrien County students. Now students and visitors can partake in seasonal activities such as making cider and maple syrup (there is a sugar shack on the premises). A large garden area in front of the school, surrounded by homemade scarecrows, is used by Buchanan school students to grow vegetables. Admission by appointment only but anyone is welcome to stop by and walk the grounds.
