It was built
between the Cryderman farms and purchased from Bert Smith. William Cryderman and Bert
Smith came to this area about 1904. It is thought Pearl Cryderman helped build it.
When the building was sold to the Adventist for a school it was moved over to where
Moser lives on M-33 and then it was destroyed in a wind storm. Pieces of the building
flew back to the original foundation on South Porter Road and were found. One thing
Glenn Cryderman remembers is that they had a lot bean soup to eat for a hot lunch. Compiled and Contributed by Nute Chapman, Sally Beatty, & Jim Hall
