Port Crescent Schools
Hume Township Huron County Michigan


This village has a good school for the education of her children, which is partially graded. S. M. Janes is Principal, and Miss Mary McKinzie, assistant. The former has sixty-five scholars, the latter fifty-five. The building is a good two-story frame structure, with two large and airy apartments. This is School District No. i. The others in the township are located as follows: District No. 2, on section 27 ; District No. 3, on section 24, and District No. 4, on section 29.

With her large lumber manufactories, her salt industries, her fine location, and good harbor facilities, with the rich country that surrounds her, we see no reason why Port Orescent should not grow and become one of the first towns in the county.
