The History of Lansing

Lansing is named after Lansing, New York, which was the hometown of the brothers who claimed much of the city’s early territory. The quiet town became the capital of Michigan due to its central location in the state, and upon gaining that title, its population quickly soared. In 1897, R. E. Olds started the Olds Motor Company in Lansing, which grew into Oldsmobile® and established Lansing as a powerhouse in the automotive industry. Over the decades, the economy slipped away from automobiles and grew in part thanks to healthcare and education, but Lansing’s automotive past remains a fixture in many of the city’s museums.
