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.

  1. Good Morning Folks!
    I am writing in response to your recent article about the renovations at Parker’s Corners. Please know that I am renovating the building as a barn. I have approval to house 2 alpacas, 30 goats and 14 chickens. I have been “dreaming out loud” with people as I figure out a way to make it pay for it-self. I would love to keep the property forever as it makes me very happy just to be standing on the property or in the soon to be more beautiful than ever building! My goal is to save the building. I need to watch what I say because it’s important to me not to overstep and upset the fine people at Iosco Township and the Liv Co Bldg Dept, who have all been great to work with. I won’t do anything that doesn’t make them happy. I am overdoing everything so that down the road, if I figure out how to make this work…everything is up to any and all codes…and then some. I’m putting the big windows back in, yay!!!!! Planning now to stucco over the horribly ugly concrete block. Hopefully, we can get that done in the next few weeks, but unfortunately I don’t think the weather will permit painting the stucco until spring. Stop by friends and neighbors to say hello! We love all the drive by honking, beeping and thumbs ups we get. Stay tuned, good things to come!
