(The story of the sanitarium is an extensive one...this is just a nutshell version for an easier read.) For $11,000, a farm was purchased in Battle Creek on which the Western Health Reform Institute was developed – and opened on September 5, 1866.

Seeing that more room and more staff was needed, an urgent plea was sent: “hustle young men off to some doctor mill, and get ready. Our institute buildings are already larger than our doctors.” One of those young men happened to be John H. Kellogg.
Brackett's 30 points propels Bronson past Pennfield
BRONSON – The Bronson Viking varsity boys basketball team celebrated their 2023-24 home opener in style Friday night, playing in front of a raucous student section as they opened their home schedule with a visit from Pennfield. Thanks to a huge second half and another 30-point game from junior guard Kam Brackett it was the Vikings taking Friday’s non-conference tilt by the score of 53-47. “It helps when you hit a couple shots but overall, we wanted to focus on our defense tonight,” Bronson coach Damien Loveless said. “We had a couple of big turnovers early, but we told the guys to just focus on our defense, which we did, especially in the second half there where we switched back-and-forth between our three different defenses to give Pennfield different looks. I think that gave us some advantages on a few key possessions and we were able to hit some big shots late to get this win.”
