Lansing has a truly rich history as the capital city of Michigan. First settled in 1859, we've come a long way since our start.

Did you also know that Lansing hasn't always been the capital city either? Detroit was once the state capital, that was until we feared an invasion from Canada or by the Great Lakes, so we moved more inward.

Since being founded back in 1859, a lot has definitely changed here in Lansing. New buildings have come and gone, and a lot of housing has been built and removed throughout the years.

Take A Look Inside One Of Lansing's Oldest Homes

We can't confirm if this is the oldest home in Lansing, but it is up there. Take a tour of this remodeled home, straight out of the 1800s. While not the original home all around. It still is up there and age and was recently flipped to match a more modern society.

The home, for being over 100 years old still has a lot of charm, but with a very modern flair to it. A lot of love and care has gone into it over the past couple of years to make it more appealing to a modern couple.

Hopefully, the home stands to see another 100 years and the people of Lansing in the future can appreciate it even more!
