Is This General Custer’s Cabin in the Lansing/Jackson Area?
Years ago I was told by locals that this cabin in the woods was used by General George Armstrong Custer as a retreat. I know that history and facts can get twisted over the years but there is also a lot of truth in many of these. Can this one be factual?
We know that General Custer was from the Monroe area - there's even a statue in town commemorating his legacy - and that he made many trips through the Mid-Michigan area. But was THIS one of his private stops?
Without divulging the exact location - because it's on private land - I will say that it's between Lansing & Jackson, off a main highway and tucked away in the woods not far from the side road; in fact, when the leaves fall it's easier to see.
I'm posting this because I'm sure there are locals who have heard or know about this...whether it's a historical fact or not.
I hope it is.
