History

Organizational History:

The Mount Pleasant Indian School in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, was part of the U.S. Indian school system. Most of the students were local, from Michigan, but others were from Minnesota, Wisconsin, and New York (state). The school was established by law in 1891, and operated from 1893 to 1934. The grounds and buildings were later used by the State of Michigan for the handicapped. The facility closed in 2008. The Saginaw Chippewa Tribe now owns the original property and buildings.
