The Turner-Dodge House & Heritage Center

James Turner and his school teacher wife, Marion, built this lovely home on the banks of the Grand River in 1858. James was an originator of many public improvements to the state of Michigan and its capital city, Lansing. Their daughter Abby and son-in-law Frank Dodge expanded the home in the early 1900's. It is now owned by the city of Lansing and you can learn a bit of the history of the area and enjoy rotating exhibits. The current exhibit is on Brides to be followed by Spring Cleaning. The Turner-Dodge home is available for special events.
