The long-closed Parkers Corners School in Iosco Township has a new owner and a new lease on life – as a goat tourist attraction.
The Fowlerville News & Views is reporting that the site at the corner of Bradley and Iosco roads will become a goat petting zoo, with eventual plans to add a goat-themed gift shop. The school was purchased by Lori (Daymon) Cook, and renovations to the building have begun. No opening date has been reported.
The Parkers Corners School, which was long part of the Fowlerville Community Schools, opened in 1955 as a country schoolhouse. In later years, the school housed Fowlerville’s alternative-education program. The school closed in the early 2000s, and has been sitting vacant and unused for nearly two decades.
