Raw Power – Eckert Power Station, Lansing Michigan

$1,100.00 $935.00

Size: 14" x 11"

Lansing, Michigan, my current, if only temporary abode, has long been a city of industry and commerce.  My next subject is close to Lansing’s downtown and its towering iconic smokestacks can be seen for miles.  The Eckert Power Station was retired from service just last year and many are now wondering what is next for the huge structure. There has been talk of it being repurposed for residential use or office space.

Lansing, Michigan, my current, if only temporary abode, has long been a city of industry and commerce.  My next subject is close to Lansing’s downtown and its towering iconic smokestacks can be seen for miles.  The Eckert Power Station was retired from service just last year and many are now wondering what is next for the huge structure. There has been talk of it being repurposed for residential use or office space. 

In the 18th century, the industrial revolution was burgeoning to meet the needs of a rapidly growing population. The steam engine, mechanized textile loom and  electricity were but a few of the inventions that permanently changed American society.

Like so many homes and institutional buildings across the nation, many early industrial infrastructures became victims of the wrecking ball. Others were abandoned.The good news is that today there is a growing interest in preserving and restoring these sturdy structures. Indeed, some are now being recognized as important landmarks of American history and are now part of the National Historic Sites or Landmarks.
