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.

  • If you're in Muskegon, these lumber barons' homes should not be missed. They've been restored in meticulous detail -- the stenciling, in particular, is gorgeous! The tour, which takes about 90 minutes...  read more »
  • We stopped in a little over an hour before they were to close for the day. The lady at the desk called and got us in with a group that had just started. The docent was kind to catch us up on the histo...  read more »

  • 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.
  • Decent tour and inexpensive. Was kind of hot and the houses have no ac. They provide hand fans for each person, but still kinda hot. We've been to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, so the comparison isn't quite fair, but fun little tour if you have time. Not essential.
  • Amazing wood work on these houses, a must see.
  • The only problem is your web site says the houses are open for tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today, and that is not true. According to your staff, they don't open again till Dec. 26 and 27.
  • The $5 tour is well worth the time and money! Beautiful homes and outstanding arcitectual detail.
