Community Description & Information
Grand Ledge, the only one in the world, is a warm, friendly community of just over 7,200 located at the junction of M-43 and M-100. Lansing and East Lansing are just minutes east on I-496, and Grand Rapids is an hour west on I-96.
Picturesquely situated on the Grand River, Grand Ledge got its name from the Grand River and the sandstone ledges that tower like sentinels along its banks as it winds along its banks through the city. First settled in the late 1830’s, the city received its name and first post office in 1850 and was incorporated in 1871.
The ledges are composed of Eaton Sandstone deposited 250 million years ago. Mostly of quartz grains cemented to iron oxide, they are one of the most geologically significant areas in lower Michigan.
Grand Ledge is host to six wonderful festivals every year, including Yankee Doodle Days, The Island Art Fair, Victorian Days, St Patrick’s Day, Memorial Day, and every autumn The Color Cruise & Island Festival!
