10 historic school buildings in metro Detroit

Michigan is home to thousands of school buildings, some of which have been shuttered, and some more than a hundred years old that are still operating.

In metro Detroit alone, public school districts trace their origins back to the 1800s, including the Detroit Public Schools Community District. A handful of buildings have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In Detroit, the city conducted a study of vacant school buildings owned by the city in 2020 and¬†built a website to showcase the¬†project’s findings, noting the conditions and features of the buildings with hopes that someday the buildings can be developed for new uses, such as housing.
