Meridian Historical Village

March 19th, 2011 by insideout

Just 30 minutes northeast of our luxury Lansing MI Bed and Breakfast is the Meridian Historical Village. A handful of buildings from the 19th century were moved to this picturesque site overlooking Lake Catherine, and then restored; the result is a charming historic village.

Many of these buildings were slated for destruction – moving them to their new home in Okemos allowed them to be saved and restored. The village includes a one-room school, a pioneer’s log cabin, a farmhouse, and an inn and tavern. The only building that is not historic is the Village Chapel, which is an exact replica of the 1870 church that originally stood in Okemos.
