Here's the chance to save a crumbling, historic building from a giant wrecking ball.  The aging building is barely visible from the road.

The schoolhouse is tucked behind dense vegetation that's grown up around it since its doors closed to students more than 50 years ago.

The one room schoolhouse's bell tower reaches above the trees, tall grass and bushes that hide it from vehicles as they pass by on South Dewitt Road.

For 93 years hundreds of students in rural Clinton County were educated there.  They sat side by side at desks inside what was officially known as Olive Township #3, one of about 115 one room schools, each their own district, that operated within the county.

Many people remember the abandoned school as Merle Beach School, or Muskrat Lake School.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
