Hugh Heward discovered the land along the Grand River that is part of Lansing today. 37 years later, the area was surveyed and a township organized. The area, originally a thick forest, was then identified and plots of land were ready for sale in 1830.
Being a dense forest, it was a challenge to set up roads and trails, which took some time to arrive. Two conmen from New York started to sell land in the marshland neighboring Lansing. More than a dozen people were fooled into the purchase only to find land that was underwater most of the year when they arrived. Most were too disappointed to get on the trail again so they set up their homes in the nearby area, close to the Grand River. All the people that had been cheated by the two conmen were from Lansing, NY and they soon named this are by the Grand River, Lansing as well.
