Lansing Wedding Resources (more information)

Lansing, NY
Lansing, located on the Eastern shore of Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes district of New York, was within the realm of the Cayuga tribe. The Sullivan Expedition of 1779 passed through the area to destroy native villages in retaliation for raids on colonists.

In 1789, the area was divided into lots (the Central New York Military Tract)  to pay the Revolutionary war soldiers for their service. The first settlers came to Lansing in 1791. John Lansing, Secretary to General Schuyler, was charged with granting this land.

The Town of Lansing was formed in 1817 from the Town of Genoa (in Cayuga County) when Tompkins County was established.

From 1942 The 'Watchtower Bible College of Gilead' was a facility in South Lansing for training Christian Missionaries from Jehovah's Witnesses until the 1970's. Later that name was changed to the Watchtower Bible School of Gilead and moved to New York City.
