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.

Not what I thought. I thought it was going to be boring but was pleasantly surprise how interesting it was. A real peak into that era. With the time.

Gorgeous house! Did not go inside because it is $10/person for an hour-long guided tour. Would prefer to be able to walk through on my own. Gorgeous house and grounds to take a peek at though!

Both the Hackley and Hume homes are restored perfectly. Both reflect the bygone age of yesteryear when craftsmanship in building was exceptional. These homes are a tribute to the history of Muskegon, Mi and it bygone lumbering days.
