About The Venue
A stunning example of Classical Revival architecture, the Turner-Dodge House is a National Historic Registered Place. The beautifully restored home was built in 1858 by James and Marion Turner, who helped establish the Capital City.
Gracefully situated high on the bank of the Grand River, the picturesque three story mansion features stately columns and a decorative cornice, while its interior showcases large classical doorways, several fireplaces, and is adorned with beveled and leaded French windows.
The Turner-Dodge House is available for tours, and is the perfect location to rent for a special day. For more details about its rich history, open hours or rental info, please visit the City of Lansing website here.
