East Lansing (Get Moving Estimate for East Lansing, MI) is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan. The city is located directly east of Lansing, Michigan, the state's capital. Most of the city is within Ingham County, though a small portion lies in Clinton (Clinton, Michigan Relocation Company). The population was 48,579 at the time of the 2010 census, an increase from 46,420 at the 2000 census. It is best known as the home of Michigan State University.


The settlement of East Lansing (Get Move Cost for East Lansing, MI) began around 1847, the same year nearby Lansing was made the capital of the state of Michigan. Downtown East Lansing (Get Moves Prices for East Lansing, MI) was an important junction of two major Native American trails: the Okemah Road, and the Park Lake Trail. By 1850, the Lansing and Howell Plank Road Company was established to connect a toll road to the Detroit and Howell Plank Road, improving travel between Detroit and Lansing, which cut right through what is now East Lansing (Get Moving Prices for East Lansing, MI). The toll road was finished in 1853, and included seven tollhouses between Lansing and Howell.

Michigan State University was founded in 1855 and established in what is now East Lansing (Get Relocation Cost for East Lansing, MI) in 1857. For the first four decades, the students and faculty lived almost entirely on the College campus. A few commuted from Lansing, and that number increased when a streetcar line was built in the 1890s, but there were few places to live in the then-rural area immediately around the campus.

That started to change in 1887, when professors William J. Beal and Rolla C. Carpenter created Collegeville, along what is now Harrison (Harrison, Michigan Movers) Road and Center and Beal Streets, north of Michigan Avenue. Few faculty were attracted to the location, and the first residents were "teamsters and laborers". In 1898, the College Delta subdivision (including what is now Delta Street) had the support of the College itself, which provided utilities, and several professors built homes there (one of which survives today at 243 W. Grand River Ave.). Other subdivisions followed.

At that time, the post office address was "Agricultural College, Michigan". A school district encompassing the nascent community was created in 1900. In 1907, incorporation as a city was proposed under the name "College Park"; the legislature approved the charter but changed the name to "East Lansing (Get Moves Quote for East Lansing, MI)". The first seven mayors, starting with Clinton D. Smith in 1907 and Warren Babcock in 1908, were professors or employees of the College.

The city charter in 1907 prohibited the possession, sale, or consumption of alcoholic beverages, and East Lansing (Get Moving Estimate for East Lansing, MI) was a "dry" city until voters modified the charter provision in 1968.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 13.67 square miles (35.41 km2), of which, 13.59 square miles (35.20 km2) is land and 0.08 square miles (0.21 km2) is water.

Since 1998, East Lansing (Get Movers Quote for East Lansing, MI) has expanded its borders through the use of 425 Agreements. The city is currently in three 425 Agreements with Bath Township, DeWitt Township, and Meridian Township, and has effectively added thousands of acres of land to its border.

It annexed the 66.5 acres (269,000 m2) of the Four Winds Golf Course in Meridian Township in 2001, and another 6 acres (24,000 m2) of the township in 2006. The city also annexed from DeWitt Township the land that is currently the East Lansing (Get Moving Quote for East Lansing, MI) Soccer Complex.


The city's downtown area is centered around Grand River Avenue, a wide tree-lined boulevard that evolved out of the 19th century plank road that connected Lansing to Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Relocation). Grand River Avenue and Michigan Avenue serves as a dividing line between the Michigan State University campus and the rest of the city. The street is lined with many college-oriented businesses, such as bars, tanning salons, coffee shops, head shops, restaurants (many dine al fresco) and bookstores. Immediately north of downtown are predominantly student neighborhoods. Further north of that is the residential part of the city, which is much like any other suburb. At the very northern tier of the city are several new housing subdivisions and student-oriented apartment complexes. These new developments are far from the university, but their lower property tax rates allow them to offer students more amenities for their monthly rent.

Elephant incident

A 12 year old, 3,000 pound female dancing elephant named Rajje (alternately reported as Raji, Little Rajjee, among other variations) rebelled against her trainer during a performance in a shopping center circus, and escaped into the streets of Lansing (Lansing, Michigan Relocation Companies), Michigan aggravated by the frenzied pursuit of nearly 4,000 local residents. The incident ended tragically with the shooting of the elephant by local police.
