MUSKEGON, Mich (WOOD) Do you ever look around at some of the historic homes in West Michigan and wonder who lived there and how they ever kept those large places clean?  There’s an effort underway on the lakeshore to keep history alive and help new generations learn from the past. The Lakeshore Museum Center and its Historic Sites gives visitors a chance to relive history.

The Historic Sites are the homes of  Muskegon’s most famous lumber baron, Charles H. Hackley, and his business partner, Thomas Hume. The Site gives the visitor a look inside unique living space, bringing late 19th century craftsmanship to life.

The Historic Sites are open Wednesday through Sunday noon to 4pm from April 30 to October 26.
