Today, the Rochester Community School District has many modern school buildings, but in the community's agricultural past, the township map was checkered with small rural school districts, each operating their own buildings. This tour provides a look at some of the surviving buildings from the rural school districts of our past, beginning with the 1848 Stony Creek schoolhouse, and including Rochester's 1889 school building, designed by renowned Michigan architect Claire Allen. The buildings on this tour are all currently used for educational purposes.
