In 1876 this Italianate schoolhouse replaced a log schoolhouse, built in 1836 and known officially as Canton Fractional No. 1 School. In 1944, Henry Ford, who operated a small factory in Cherry Hill, paid for an addition to this building as well as for the salary for a second teacher. The school became part of the Greenfield Village School System where students benefited from art, music and dance curricula. Cherry Hill School was absorbed into the Plymouth School District in 1955.
