  • The Turner-Dodge Mansion, a cherished Lansing landmark, offers a glimpse into the city's rich history and architectural beauty. Perched gracefully overlooking the Grand River, this historic home holds tales that date back to its original construction in 1858.

    Architect Darius B. Moon, a prominent figure in Lansing's history, crafted this masterpiece in the distinguished Greek Revival style for its first owners, James and Marion Turner. Subsequently, the home passed into the hands of Abigail and Frank Dodge, the daughter and son-in-law of the Turners. Under their ownership, the mansion underwent significant expansion, transforming it into the resplendent Classical Revival style residence that we admire today.

    In recognition of its historical and architectural significance, the Turner-Dodge Mansion earned a coveted place on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. Two years later, in 1974, the City of Lansing took ownership of this treasured piece of history, ensuring its preservation and accessibility to generations to come.

    The Turner-Dodge Mansion stands as a testament to Lansing's enduring heritage, a place where the past comes to life through its stately architecture and captivating stories. Join us in exploring this iconic Lansing landmark, where history, beauty, and culture converge to create a truly memorable experience. Come and be enchanted by the Turner-Dodge Mansion!

Over the years, it has evolved into one of Lansing's cherished destinations. The park's legacy took a significant turn in 1920 when it welcomed its first animal residents, including elk, bears, raccoons, and deer, marking the inception of the Potter Park Zoo.

  • It feels like you are "up north" when you are at Hawk Island Park, and it's only a 10-minute drive from Downtown Lansing or East Lansing. Hawk Island County Park is a 100-acre park in Lansing. You can live within walking distance from the park for less than $100,000.

    The park offers enough to keep the entire family busy: boat rentals, swimming beach, splash pad, picnic areas, sand volleyball, horseshoes, fishing, a playground, and snow tubing in the winter. I frequently walk the park in the early morning, bike around in the evening, and while fly fishing, catch some bluegill. You can easily spend hours enjoying the outdoors at Hawk Island. There is a low vehicle entrance fee, or you can buy a year-round pass that gets you into all the Ingham County Parks. If you are walking in, there is no fee. I recommend getting the pass. Once you visit Hawk Island you will be planning your return.

    Great News! Office and retail space in Downtown Lansing seem to be heating up. For starters, there are several new projects under development, not the least of which are several new residential properties being built. Not only that, but the Michigan Association of Broadcasters is also building a brand new media center just three blocks from the State Capitol. This facility will not only house the Association's new office space but a new, state of the art media center that can be used by State Government, the City of Lansing, and anyone who needs a facility with the latest in high tech internet services.

    Still more! There are several major players who are shopping Downtown for redevelopment and expansion. All of this activity should produce an added need for more retail and residential space. We are seeing tenants and buyers asking about space for daycare, restaurants, theater, and professional use.

    A recent collaboration between MSU, the City of Lansing, and the Chamber of Commerce brings a ton of new economic energy to our Capitol City. It looks like Lansing is beginning to live up to the reputation of being a "cool city".
  • Ingham County is well known for its beautiful parks. You can get a little of everything in one county. You can visit Hawk Island Park, Burchfield Park, and Lake Lansing Park. Hawk Island is a great place to go running, hiking, fishing, tubing and has its own dog park. Burchfield Park features a great pool, cross country skiing, and disc golf. At Lake Lansing Park you can enjoy laying out on the beach, taking a spin on your boat or simply enjoy the beautiful sights throughout the 1,200 acres of Parkland. We are lucky to have our County take such good care of our parks. There is truly something to do year-round!
