BUNERT SCHOOL LISTED ON NATIONAL REGISTRY OF HISTORIC PLACES
Recently we learned that the Bunert School has been accepted on the
National Registry of Historic Places. The Warren Historical & Genealogical
Society will be working to design and purchase an Historic Registery
Marker for the school house and will hold a dedication ceremony. The ceremony
will occur sometime next spring.
This recognition now gives Warren 2 National Historic Site
recognitions, the other being General Motors. We feel this is indeed an
honor and hope you share in our appreciation of this honor.
It hasn't been posted in the database but it is listed in their weekly updates for June 8, 2012

WARREN (IMAGES OF AMERICA)
Author: Martha Ruth Burczyk
Publication Date: April 5, 2010
Series: Images of America (Arcadia Publishing)
Known as Beebe's Corners in the early 1800s, the city of Warren has grown to become the third-largest city in Michigan,
surrounding Center Line-the city within the city. Warren's history has something for everyone. A pioneer burial ground
was discovered on school property in the 1970s, and an old Norway spruce still points the way for a vanished tribe.
In the 1920s, the Warren cooperative supplied goods to a growing community, and the first African American cemetery
in the state was established as well. Warren's General Motors Tech Center was dubbed "the Versailles of Industry" in
the mid-20th century; in addition to a worldwide radio broadcast, a crowd of 5,000 attended the dedication ceremony,
including Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower. The Chrysler tank arsenal helped to end World War II. World-renowned architects
Eero Saarinen and Albert Kahn designed commercial and residential structures in Warren and Center Line. Places of worship
represent all faiths, and a top-notch school system serves Warren-testaments to the culture of this community.
the book is available through the Warren Historical & Genealogical Society for $20.00.
For information about purchasing these books, please leave a message at the Historical Gallery 586-258-2056 and someone will return your call as soon as possible. Please remember that we are all
volunteers and the office isn't staffed full time.
