Dale Fisher Galleries
All of the walls within the buildings of The Eyry of the Eagle Farm feature the fine art photography of Dale Fisher. During his 50+ year career and known for his “Eagle Eye” perspective, Working almost exclusively from a low-altitude helicopter,  Dale has been perfecting his art of creating images from a rarely seen perspective. His Galleries are filled with collections of art from the states of Michigan, Hawaii, Arizona, New York and many other areas; as well as, wildlife, nautical, landscape images for all four seasons.

Dale’s low-altitude, distinctive and personal, commercial photography transforms freeways, construction sites, farms and homes into works of fine art. These images have many business benefits, which include:
• Project Documentation
• Public Relations and Marketing Material
• Presentation images
• Website and social media photos
• Wall Hangings
• Client Gifts
• And Much more

The Eyry of the Eagle Farm is also home to the Michigan Center for the Photographic Arts, a non-profit 501(3)(c) organization that's main focus is to unleash the creative spirit in children through the art of photography.

A small sampling of Dale's art and information about upcoming events may be viewed at www.DaleFishePhoto.com. Call 517-522-3705 to schedule a tour of Dale Fisher’s Fine Art Galleries.

First Presbyterian Church

At Jackson's First Presbyterian Church "Serving God and Serving Others" is what we are called to do as a church. This little phrase is on our coffee cups, baseball caps, T-shirts, and stationery. What it actually means is that our mission is following the teachings of Jesus Christ to love and care for those he loves. We believe that he loves people of all races, religions, sexual orientation, and those who have faith and those who do not.

    In the words of a famous prayer, he "loves the poor and the helpless, thecold, the hungry and the oppressed; the sick in body and in mind and them that mourn; the lonely and the unloved; the aged and the little children; all who know not the Lord Jesus, or who love him not, or who by sin have grieved his heart of love."

      This is the "Gospel" or "good news" that we feel called out to do. Our understanding of the Gospel is that we are called by Jesus to live out these teachings in today's world. The ministries of our congregation reflect this.

Various rooms available for groups from 5 people to 100 people.

In Good Company

In Good Company Restaurant is family owned & operated, by the Manville Family.  Being a family that has lived in the area for over twenty years, they wanted to give the residents of Clarklake and the greater Jackson area, a restaurant unlike any other.   At In Good Company their business is built around the following cultures:

The Culture of Food Beyond merely nourishing the body, what we eat and with whom
we eat can inspire and strengthen the bonds between individuals, and communities. Our goal for YOU is Food that is a source of pleasure, comfort and a symbol of our hospitality. All that we’ve selected for the menu, how we’ve prepared it, and served it, are meant to nourish YOU and YOUR SOUL. At “In Good Company” Restaurant, we believe in a culture that #AppreciatesGoodFood.

The Culture of Bourbon Bourbon is steeped in tradition. The tradition oozes out of the neck of the bottle when the cork is pulled and the bottle sighs. Our goal for YOU is to taste the care that goes into making bourbon, and all of it’s rules and rituals that has deserved it a place on our liquor shelf. Having the finest collection of Bourbon in the area gives us a sense of pride that is meant to feed YOUR patriotism to America, it’s corn and charred-oak barrels.  At “In Good Company” Restaurant, we believe in a culture that #RemembersHeritage.

 

The Culture of Community-Minded People Being a part of a social unit that shares common values, we have a responsibility to help each other. From church groups to school groups, professional groups to social groups, and everything in between, our goal for YOU is to contribute by dining. 15% of proceeds, from 4-9pm on most Wednesday nights support great local causes. At “In Good Company” Restaurant, we believe in a culture that #LiftsEachOtherUp.

The Culture of Art Celebrating multiple perspectives, the arts remind us that there are many ways to see and interpret the world. Embracing this diversity, our goal for YOU is to view the artworks on our walls and experience the ideas of our community’s artists, their thoughts, and how it is that they are able to see through their medium to express such ideas. Feel free to pick up your glass, walk around and view the art. Artworks change weekly, most of which is for sale. At “In Good Company” Restaurant, we believe in a culture that #SupportsTheArts.

The Culture of living life as a Celebration Whether you’re celebrating something specific or not, dining should be a fun experience. On the date of your birthday, YOU can get up to $10 off your meal. And, if it’s not your birthday, we encourage YOU to dine like you’ve got something to celebrate. At “In Good Company” Restaurant, we believe in a culture that #EnjoysLife.

In Good Company offers customers a wonderful dining environment where guests are able to meet with friends and family to create new memories while surrounded by great food, art and a full bar.  So stop on in and build your very own omlette or taste our homemade lasgana!  No matter what you order when you are here…you’re always In Good Company!

In 1901, Andrew Carnegie donated $70,000 for the construction of a library building in the city of Jackson. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the State of Michigan Register of Historic Sites, this Neo-Classical style building was designed and built in 1906. The facility features inlaid terrazzo floors, intricate ceiling moldings, Carrara white marble staircase and numerous pieces of art. The Carnegie building became the main branch for the newly created district in 1978. In 1981, with a bequest from Mrs. Mable MinterVan Orman, a circular structure was built at the rear of the library. This added an elevator, history room, back lobby and a children's storytelling room. 

Meeting Rooms are available for rent free of charge. See their website for rental policies.

The Meijer Branch evolved out of the former headquarters for Jackson County Library that had been established in 1928 at West Avenue. This building later became the West Avenue Branch when the Jackson District Library formed in 1978. After consolidation of the City and County library systems, this active branch needed a better location. Fred Meijer of the Meijer Thrifty Acres, Inc. donated the land to the Jackson District Library where the Meijer Branch sits today.

Built in 1983, the new building doubled the size of the library and provided better access and parking. It soon became evident that as the surrounding area expanded, the branch needed to offer even more collections, more computers, and spaces for library and community events. In anticipation of another expansion, the library board decided to purchase the lot next to the Meijer Branch from Fred Meijer Inc.

After nearly a decade, construction finally began on an addition and renovation project in 2013. The completed project was finished in May 2014 and features an interactive family zone, 23 computers, two study rooms and a digital media studio that residents can use for graphic and audio projects. A major highlight of the expanded library is a community room with an adjoining kitchenette that can seat up to 100 people, or partitioned into three spaces to host smaller groups.

Numerous cozy amenities such as a fireplace, comfortable seating, and a vending area await visitors during open hours. When the branch is closed, patrons have access to pick up lockers, transforming the location into a 24/7 branch for residents to pick up or drop off materials. The entire library is a WiFi hot spot. The Friends of the Meijer Branch library also operate a used book store.

Spring Arbor University (SAU) is a liberal arts university dedicated to developing lifelong learners through the integration of faith and learning. Spring Arbor University is a community of learners distinguished by our lifelong involvement in the study and application of the liberal arts, total commitment to Jesus Christ as the perspective for learning, and critical participation in the contemporary world.

Spring Arbor University was founded in 1873 by leaders of the Free Methodist Church as Spring Arbor Seminary, an academy for elementary and secondary grades. 

In 1923, as the school celebrated its 50th anniversary, the board of trustees voted to add a junior college to the academy. In 1929, the school became Spring Arbor Seminary and Junior College.

In 1960, when the school achieved accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, the trustees changed the name of the institution to Spring Arbor College

Whistle Stop Park Depot

The Central Railroad (later the Michigan Central Rail Road, or MCRR) came through Grass Lake in 1842, and the community grew around that first depot. In 1887, Grass Lake was awarded a stone depot designed by the same architects and with stone from the same quarry as the Ann Arbor station. This historic Romanesque train depot offers displays of local interest.

Available for rentals, receptions, parties, and weddings. Contact the Grass Lake Chamber Office at 517-522-8838 for availability & information.

Heritage Day in September highlights the depot every year with an Open House. Stop in on the first Saturday in December to experience the festival of lights. While checking out this fantastic depot, why not take advantage of the beautiful park with its flower garden and nice gazebo located adjacent to the building.

Named Whistle Stop after the book of the same name written by Grass Lake Native, Maritta Wolff. The movie version of the book starred Ava Gardner.
