YMCA Historic Column

Expertly crafted more than 70 years ago, the YMCA Historic Column was located at the site of the former Lansing YMCA on Lenawee Street. The column, donated to LCC in 2015, has been reimagined and retro tied with newly designed stained-glass windowpanes and was given life by a newly installed light source that spread an artistic shine on the corner of Shiawassee and Seymour Streets. Bronze plaques featuring line drawings of the Old Central Building and the historic Carnegie Library display the pillar’s Lansing heritage.
