Lansing ResidenceLansing Residence

Welcome to the Michigan Governor's Lansing Residence. The Residence was originally built in 1957 by Howard and Letha Sober, who donated it to the state in 1969. The Sobers were the founders of one of the nation's leading automobile transporting firms, Howard Sober Inc. American architect, Wallace Frost, designed the Residence. It sits on approximately four acres in the Moores River Drive neighborhood in Lansing. The Residence is a showcase to the beautiful products of Michigan. Materials used to build the house came from all over the state including, a cedar ceiling milled in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the Garden Room, a Michigan walnut floor in the Living Room, and KitchenAid appliances manufactured by the Michigan-based Whirlpool Corporation.
