Built in 1907 of Norway pine, the Bailey School is one of the few remaining one-room, log schoolhouses still standing in Michigan
The school bell still rings from atop the roof to summon students of history and simpler times.
It was built at the site of C.A. Johnson Logging Camp west of Mikado for the children of the logging crews.
Partially restored in 1973, the structure was disassembled, moved and restored in 1998 to its current Sturgeon Point site
It is furnished with items used during its time, including a recitation bench, desks, drinking pail and dipper, and coal stove.
Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.
Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.
Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.
Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.
What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.
