The Thelma Joyce Osteen Comfort Station Rehabilitation

313 E. Cesar E. Chavez Avenue, Lansing, Michigan 48906

The Thelma Joyce Osteen Comfort Station, built in 1914-1915, is a historic building in Lansing, Michigan’s Old Town Historic District. The Comfort Station is an unusual building originally affiliated with an interurban rail system.

MHPN purchased and rehabbed this long-vacant historic building for use as its headquarters and in February 2013, moved into the second-floor office space. The first-floor space is leased to a private business for their offices.
