Buckeye Township Hall

-A A +A
1939. 1498 S. Hockaday Rd., 7 miles southeast of Gladwin

Organized in 1882, Buckeye Township held its first meeting on April 3 at the Smallwood Settlement schoolhouse. Nearly sixty years later, with profits from the oil fields in the township, the township built this simple Colonial Revival fieldstone hall for meetings and elections. The modest T-plan building is dignified with a two-stage tower with a balustrade on the lower level that rises at the crossing of the T and with a bracketed round-arched hood filled with a sunburst that crowns its asymmetrical, slightly recessed entrance. Characteristic of the style, the interior is paneled with knotty pine.
