ONEIDA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – A home for sale in the Lansing area comes with much history. There’s a bell that summoned kids to school more than 100 years ago and a ledger with a teacher’s handwritten notes.
Holly Way’s home in Eaton County’s Oneida Township was a one-room schoolhouse until 1954. She bought it in 2002, renovated and expanded it and lived there with three children. Now it’s on the market for $158,000.READ MORE: Kellogg's Being Sued Over Strawberry Pop-Tarts
