A downtown Lansing restaurant built inside a former train station is set to close after more than 37 years.

The Lansing State Journal reports that Clara's Lansing Station is closing Sunday.

Peter Jubeck bought Union Station, formerly the Michigan Central Railroad Depot, in 1978 and transformed it into a restaurant. His wife, Linda, and two children, Scott and Cindy, are the current owners.

Scott Jubeck says the restaurant is closing because there are several costly renovation and repair needs for the building, which is over 100 years old.

According to Cindy Jubeck, business had some challenging times due to the Great Recession. She says several years of road construction that took place in front of the building also had an effect on their customer base.
