What to expect: Just north of Lansing is the site of America's deadliest school massacre that happened in May of1927.

He then proceeded to blow himself, and anyone near the area, up into bits!!! In total 58 souls perished that day...including 38 children. This peaceful memorial park is now dedicated to the victims.
