CAHP Aims to Save Historic Walter French School from Wrecking Ball
This past December the Louis J. Eyde and George F. Eyde Family donated the former Walter H. French Junior High School, located at 1900 S. Cedar Street in Lansing, to our organization. CAHP plans include pursuing a mixed-use redevelopment of the historic building, to include a variety of residential options.

"We still wake up amazed that we were fortunate enough to find CAHP and work with the to purchase our home." - Stuart & Tonya
