|The Bunert school building was named for August and Mine Bunert, who
sold land to Warren School District No. 4 in January 1875. The
school was built later that year on the north-east corner of the
intersection of Bunert and Martin roads. When classes ceased in
1944, it was the longest serving one room school in Warren.
In 1987 the board and batten building was donated to the Warren
Historical Society, and then moved to a location on the south side of Warren Tower High School.
|Bunert was the District No.4 School in this area that later became the Warren
Woods School District. The Warren Historical Society rescued the one room school house, moved it south approximately 1000
feet to its current location on the Warren Woods Tower High School property and commenced restoring the building to its
original design. These upgrades were completed in 1994 although the upkeep is ongoing. In July 2009 Holy Trinity Productions
filmed part of a made-in-Michigan movie "Leonie" the story of the older sister of St. Therese of Liseux at Bunert.
