  2. Hi Tim, I’ve seen your posts on various FB groups and I’m also from Lansing. While researching my family one of their addresses listed on the 1910 Census looks like 409 Hall Street which someone translated to Wall Street. The street before on the census is Ash St. which is right behind Rally’s between Cedar & Larch and also Adams St. which is a block north and between Cedar and Center St. I’m assuming Hall or Wall/Well must have been in the vicinity but I haven’t been able to find it on a map. Do you have any idea where it might be or which name it would have actually been? I appreciate any help.

    • Deb, This looks like something the local historian would be better at answering. They have maps and old city directory’s there. Please contact Heidi Butler at butlerh@cadl.org at the downtown CADL Lansing library, used to be called the Lansing Public Library. Good luck. – Timothy

  3. Thanks for your reply Tim. I was in process of writing to Heidi when I decided to do one more search and guess what. A previous blog of yours named “Lansing Street Names – MI” dated Feb 26, 2014 had this on it.
    Wall Street
    (Obsolete) Now named Maple, of which it is a continuation on the east side of river. – Probably named for Wall St. in N.Y.C. (Foster, 3/6/38)
    When I looked at Google maps it is right in between Ash & Adams right in the vicinity so now I know exactly where my grandparents lived in 1910. I just wanted to thank you for all of your help.

  4. Dear Mr. Bowman:

    This is John Rodrigue with The History Press, a publisher of local and regional history. As the Michigan editor, I am looking for local historians, archivists, storytellers, guides, and writers so that we can bring more attention to the history and culture of the state. I think your material would be an excellent fit for our press. Does this sound like something you would be interested in?

    While I have your digital ear, please permit me to briefly describe our press. The History Press is focused exclusively on publishing projects of local and regional history, and we believe that we provide a vital community service. As a traditional press, we handle all stages of the publishing process—from financing, editorial, design, and production to sales, marketing, and distribution—and compensate in the form of royalties. We publish a wide range of books, including brief histories of a town or neighborhood, the story of a local landmark, and collections of folklore and essays on the local culture.

    I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to reach out to me at john.rodrigue@historypress.net.

    Best regards,

    John Rodrigue
    Acquisitions Editor I The History Press
