This website is made possible by a sponsorship from Thornton House Bed and Breakfast in Lansing Iowa and it's purpose is not only advertising but also to offer a different perspective on Lansing Iowa past and present. The historical pages provided by Thornton House B&B represent a part of the photographic and literary historical collection that spans over a hundred years in Lansing Iowa and our purpose is to make portions of this collection available through this website for all to read and enjoy. Check back often as we plan to continually add historical material as we continue to process and organize this collection.
Thornton House B&B is located on the side of Mt. Hosmer and provides upscale yet casual accommodations in a historic 5000 square foot home in Lansing, Iowa. Thornton House B&B is convenient to downtown where you can walk to all the Main St. shops and restaurants yet we are located in a quiet residential neighborhood. See the lodging page for more details.
