Historic School Moves to Wessels Living History Farm

Not much is known about the small German school that was recently relocated from its home at 506 S. Saunders, in Sutton, to the Wessels Living History Farm, just one mile south of York. It has been suggested that the school was built in the early 1900s, but no one knows for sure, as records of the construction have not been found or are known of. The school was used by the German Reformed Church in rural Sutton, for the teaching of reading and writing the Bible in German.

A large scale amount of dirtwork has been completed by Van Kirk Construction of Sutton, setting the base for the new four-field complex in northwest Sutton.
