Gaskins School, 1900s, Weber

The two-room Gaskins School is located in the Weber community. Bryan Shaw of the Berrien County Historical Society notes that it was built prior to 1908. After consolidation, a larger building was constructed adjacent to this schoolhouse and it was used as the lunchroom.

Shaw also states that the consolidated school was moved off the property when it closed, and was remodeled by Sheriff Walter Gaskins for use as his home.

    It’s always to see old school houses still standing. It’s too bad that too many of our historic buildings are being demolished without without regard to the importance of such.

    Brian, I have a 1848 log cabin (which I grew up in) still standing on my property. I still enjoy sitting on the front porch enjoying the sunsets and listening to the rain on the tin roof. (It’s raining now and I’m on the porch).
    It would be nice to have you visit me in Wheeler County.
