Greenfield Park Elementary

Greenfield Park was one of several schools built by Greenfield Township prior to its annexation to Detroit in 1917. The school was completed in 1916. An auditorium, gymnasium, and machine shop were added on a short time later to support the needs of the growing automobile industry. Further additions in 1922, 1923, and 1927 increased the capacity, and as other schools became crowded, the overflow students were sent to Greenfield Park.

Located in a mostly vacant neighborhood, Greenfield Park Elementary closed in 2007 due to decreasing population. Between 1998 and 2007, enrollment dropped 46% from 623 to 274. Problems with plumbing and heating contributed to its closure and subsequent abandonment.

The school was demolished in 2016.
