About the Mason Area
Mason, Michigan, is the seat of Ingham County government. The clock tower of the historic Ingham County Courthouse is a beacon in the heart of the community and the Courthouse is the centerpiece of our historic downtown area. The Mason area is a community of about 16,000 people (8,200 in the City of Mason) and is only minutes south of Lansing, the state capital. The small town lifestyle and agricultural setting of the Mason area attracts residents and employers who enjoy a buffer from nearby suburban areas. Quiet and attractive neighborhoods, our antiques district, rural charm, affordable homes, a high-quality school system and convenient, quick access to the Lansing metropolitan area and Michigan State University are just some of the reasons people enjoy living in the Mason area.
