Lansing Airport Guide

Lansing is an attractive city with much history and architecture worth discovering courtesy of its role as state capital. Visit the recently restored State Capitol building, found in an attractive 19th century neighbourhood and which is on the National Register of Historic Buildings. A trip to the Historic Center and Library reveals a unique exhibit for there’s a live white pine in the centre, the symbol of the state.

If you like old cars then the R E Olds Museum is a must, for it was he that founded Oldsmobile, now part of GM and you can find out about the man’s inspiration and philanthropy and see his cars there.

Lansing Info

Early Lansing had an interesting beginning. Plotted as a township in the middle of dense forest it remained a series of log cabins with just a walking path out of it for decades. It was then the subject of a scam when plots which were underwater for much of the year were passed off as being part of an established town. Eventually, after several false starts it grew to become the state capital and a major seat of learning in the north eastern US.

Lansing Trivia:
  • Lansing is the state capital of Michigan despite being only the fifth largest city
  • It’s the only US state capital that’s not the seat of a county as well
  • The city was originally labelled Township 4 North Range 2 West
  • For decades no roads were built to or from the city as it was located in the middle of dense forest
  • The city became known as Biddle City before gaining the name of a New York township
