EAST LANSING, Mich. —  A piece of northern Michigan property long owned by Michigan State University has been sold to a local cultural center.

The East Lansing school's Board of Trustees approved the sale of the Leland Township property Friday to the Leelanau Community Cultural Center for $800,000.

The center had been using it for cultural and educational programming.

The township, which had a long-term lease for the property, constructed an additional building and was responsible for the maintenance of and improvements to the buildings and grounds.

Michigan State received the property, which is less than an acre, as a gift in 1939.
