Oakland County Pioneer & Historical Society [MI]

The Oakland County Pioneer & Historical Society's Pine Grove Historical Museum consists of the 1845 Greek revival mansion of the 12th Michigan governor, Moses Wisner. The site also contains a summer kitchen, outhouse, smokehouse, root cellar, and the Drayton Plains One-Room Schoolhouse. A Carriage House is also home to the Research Library, office and the Pioneer Museum.

School tours led by costumed docents are offered on site. Teachers may also rent the one-room school house for half the day to teach their own lessons in an authentic Victorian school. Teacher guides are available on site to assist teachers in designing a field trip that meets their needs.
