I believe you are refering to the former school. I don't know who owns it now. I was probably built shortly after the mills and town were built by the Mohawk and the Wolverine Mining Cos.. That was the late 1890's and it would have been most active up until about 1931-32 when the mines and mills closed. I am writing this off the top of my head so the dates might be slightly off.
