About Turner Dodge House

Originally constructed shortly after the middle of the 19th century, the Turner-Dodge House was enlarged and altered during the first decade of the 20th century. Certainly one of the earliest major residential structures in Michigan's new capital city, it was the home for 100 years to several generations of a pioneer family who had a profound impact on both local and state history. It is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a building of considerable cultural and architectural significance.

Designated as a Cultural Center by the City of Lansing, the house is administered by the Cultural Arts Section of the city's Parks and Recreation Department. In 1989 a contract was awarded to Ralph Calder & Associates, Inc. to lead a master plan team which included ideology, historical context, site planning, interior finishes, interpretation, engineering and marketing, in addition to architectural preservation. It was the intent for this team to guide the building's preservation, interior adaptation, site development, and public program use.
