This year, the Michigan Library & Historical Center celebrates their 30th year. The dedication took place on Tuesday, March 7, 1989.

At a cost of 42 million dollars, it combined the museum, state library, and archives all under one roof. Previously, all three were scattered throughout the area.

Governor James Blanchard cut the symbolic ribbon and announced, "Now we have the envy of the nation".

Located at 702 W. Kalamazoo Street in downtown Lansing, it still proudly stands, holding many of Michigan's treasured history within.
