Ingham County, Michigan

Ingham County, Michigan

Ingham County was settled in 1834 and was named after Andrew Jackson's Secretary of the Treasury, Samuel D. Ingham. Ingham county's largest community is Lansing, Michigan's state capitol. Although Detroit was Michigan's first capitol city, a controversy arose about moving the capitol to a more central location: A political battle ensued and Lansing Township emerged as a suitable compromise location in 1847.

Today Ingham county is dominated by not only Michigan's capitol city, but Oldsmobile factories and Michigan State University - the state's largest institution of higher learning. It is fast on the grow, with developing suburbs and an increasingly diversified economy.
