Down the street from the Capital is this beautiful old Victorian house. The historical maker tells some of its history and reads:
Lansing architect Darius B. Moon built this Queen Anne style house in 1891 for realtor H. M. Rogers. Purchased by Lansing merchant M. R. Carrier in 1905, the house was occupied by the Carrier family until 1964. In 1966, Lansing Community College bought the structure. Students of the architectural studies center began restoring it in 1982. The restoration included redesigning and reconstructing the turret that previously had been removed.
I found out about his house a while ago and on a recent trip to Lansing I wanted to see it. Maybe it’s just me but it seems like Lansing has more one-way streets than any town in Michigan. Whichever way I wanted to go the street was running the opposite direction. I did not think I was ever gonna get to where I wanted to go. I did find this house eventually. Now I know how to get to it so I can come back in the summer when the landscaping is not so dreary.
