Clarence-Newstead Joint School District #3

Wilson Greatbatch Home-5935 Davison Road

Built in 1856 this brick building once served as a schoolhouse until 1923 in what was School District 3 in Newstead.

Mr. Greatbatch purchased the property in 1980 and lived there until his death in 2011.                  

He was a self-described “tinkerer” and was the holder of 325 patents. In 1958 he invented the implantable pacemaker-a device which continues to save thousands of lives.
