    1848 · State Capital Moves to Lansing
    Age 14
    Detroit fought to maintain the Capitol within its jurisdiction, but communities in the growing western part of the state had reasons for wanting a move inland. This move would make the Capitol more easily defensible in case of another war between the British and the U.S. like that of the War of 1812. Proponents of moving the capitol also sought to make the government more accessible to the people throughout the state. Construction began in 1847 on a temporary state capitol building in Lansing. It was a simple two-story wood frame structure, painted white with green wooden shutters and topped by a tin cupola. The building was sold when the permanent capitol building opened in 1879 and, like the first capitol, it was later destroyed by a fire in 1882.

    Age 16
    Belle Vue Gaol was a Victorian prison in Gorton, Manchester. The living conditions for the prisoners were horrible. It was intended to be a prison for both males and females and also became a military prison.  In 1892, the prison was demolished.
