Explore history along the lakeshore


If you’re looking for a fun place to explore, where you can also learn about local history, we have a great spot for you during the warm summer months!

The Hackley and Hume Historic Site is where two of Muskegon’s most well-known lumber barons once lived. It’s comprised of two beautifully restored homes, with interiors of fine craftsmanship and furnishings plus, a gorgeous barn.

Today, Rachael’s taking us inside the homes for a glimpse of all the splendor and highlighting a few of the fun events taking place there this summer!

The homes are stunning, so lovingly restored and summer is a great time to come to Muskegon to check them out.  They offer guided tours every 20 minutes, if you have a group of 10 or more, you’re asked to call ahead.

And coming up this Saturday, May 25th, it’s Hackley Day! It’s their summer kickoff, so from 10am to 4pm, they’ll offer free tours for Muskegon County residents and members. The evening celebration is 6 to 9pm, with live music, lawn games and adult beverages.

They have lots of special days designated all summer, for example, on Fathers Day, June 16th, dads from Muskegon County get in free. They also do fun things like a “Scandal” tour and Live Clue, similar to the board game, and an Obituary tour.

You can also follow them on Facebook! The Hackley & Hume Historic Site is run by the Lakeshore Museum Center, which is just down the road from these homes. It’s another fun place to visit when you’re in Muskegon.
