The Busenbark School District #4 is located in the Northwest Quarter of the Southwest Quarter of Section 2, Township 21 North, Range 2 East, Horton Township, Ogemaw County, on Airport Road at Peach Lake Road. It was originally located on the Wildview Farm, which was the home place of Lera Lewis and her family. The building was later moved to one acre of property owned by Harry Busenbark, who was Superintendent of Schools. The property is located on Cabin Lake Road, east of Peach Lake Road. There is an old cabin on this property which is visible from the road. Later the school was moved to its present site on Peach Lake Road, just south of Cabin Lake Road. According to James Busenbark, in order to have the school most conveniently located for its students, it was moved as needed.

Again, records are sparse and if you have any information on the Busenbark School you are asked to contact the Ogemaw County Coordinator, Grace Dooley.
