Copper Harbor Schoolhouse
A multiple generational school, Copper Harbor’s one-room schoolhouse is one of the of the oldest in Michigan — and is also the farthest north. Established in 1850, the school is still active with an average of 6-12 students attending each year. The school district’s motto is “Searching For Knowledge” and the mascot of the schoolhouse is the Copper Harbor Prospectors. Interestingly, the local copper mining families were originally responsible for funding and creating this school, and their efforts were clearly not in vain.
