Historic Site Tourist Spot
The Hackley and Hume Historic Site tells the story of two men who used their business educations, work experiences, and natural talents to take advantage of lumbering opportunities in Muskegon and build vast fortunes. They not only worked together, but built homes on the same piece of land. The homes feature many original stained glass windows, exquisite wood carving, and period furnishings.

  • Worth checking out. Great history in these old houses. Tour guides are great and very informative.
  • Absolutely worth it. The detail and history of both houses is remarkable. Would do it again
  • Great tour guide and very educational. Beautiful detailed architecture and colors as well !!! And was awesome way to spend Fathers day
  • Fun guided tours through two Lumberbarons homes, houses are beautiful!
  • I highly recommend this tour. You need a good 1-2 hours to enjoy both houses. Our 6 year old son did well on the 1st house but didn't last for the 2nd one. I had to take a break with him and my wife finished the second house. It's very educational and gives you a prespective of how the rich lived at the turn of the century. The architecture (Queen Anne) is amazing and definitely worth seeing if you're in the area. There are historical homes on the same street that are private, but you can take a nice walk and observe from the outside.
