Overview

The Hackley and Hume Historic Site features the restored homes of Muskegon's most well-known lumber barons with outstanding wood carving, stained glass windows, and period furnishings. A guided tour of the homes offers visitors a look at life in the late 1800s and early 1900s. During the summer months, there are often games on the lawn for our young visitors. The Site is open from May to October.

Beautiful homes - the woodwork throughout the houses is fantastic! Saw them during the holidays. Every room was decorated differently. Each to the period of late 1800's.
