Maybe it's just me, but when I am driving I really take notice of old buildings and new ones going up. For instance, recently I was driving by a new restaurant that was being remodeled and I could tell by the shape of the building that it used to be an old Ponderosa steak house.  I use to go to those a lot growing up in the South Chicago suburbs.

There are a lot of old buildings in Lansing and notice a lot of them near where I live in Downtown Lansing.

So about 6 months ago I was running errands and I passed a building and I thought to myself I wonder if that used to be a Firehouse.  I took a few pics to ask around and forgot about it.

Wow! I Remember Taking These

Last week I was going through my photos on my phone and I came across those pics, and. once again I thought what is this building.  Is it just a residence now?  Maybe,  it looks like it would be a cool place to live indeed. I am not sure of the address or where I saw it.  It was close to Downtown.

Do you know this Buiding?  I would say it used to be a firehouse, at least that would be my first guess.

What Is The History Of This Building?

If you have any history on it, we would love to know.  I am not even sure where in Lansing it is because it was a while ago that I took the pictures. Feel free to share any pictures or history on this and any cool old buildings that have been restored in Lansing.
