Lansing landmark a 'Temple' for creativity

Sep 19, 2013

The makerspace in Lansing, located in Old Town's Temple Building, is a community workshop where people can share tools and concepts, according to Brian Adams the board president of the Lansing Makers Network.

Over 100-years ago it was a church, its stairwell under the feet of countless young brides as they stood at the top and tossed their bouquets. Decades later, it was nightclub that laid claim to hosting some of the biggest national acts to come through Lansing. Then it was empty sitting unused. But not anymore.

 There are some new tenants using Old Town’s Temple Building. Current State’s Becky McKendry took a trip to see just who’s been occupying the space.
