Mosherville School

The first school in Mosherville opened in 1847. It was followed by a frame schoolhouse in 1857-58 and then this schoolhouse in 1872. Built at a cost of $2800, the building originally had two rooms serving grades one through ten. As the town grew it became a an eight-grade school. The school closed in 1967 and is currently the home of the Ladies’ Aid Society.

The school is on North Street next to a church built in 1862. The church has held non-denominational services since 1947. Hope you enjoy the images from a bygone era.

Leaves

While the star of the show is usually the blossom or fruit of a plant, leaves play a strong supporting role and sometimes even co-star in the flowery show. Here are a few leaf images.

In the Conservatory

For those familiar with the game of Clue (“in the conservatory with a candlestick, by Mrs. White”), you know what a conservatory is; a room with lots of glass in the walls and roof. Often these rooms are filled with plants. Hidden Lake Gardens has a very nice 3-room conservatory on their grounds that houses many plants not native to Michigan, as well as a few perennials. This blog features some of my favorite flower photos. My next blog will focus on leaves. Please enjoy.
