    Hackley House

    by mhendon Updated Jul 25, 2006

    This three-story wood-frame building is one of Michigan's most splendid examples of Queen Anne architecture. Fifteen stained-glass windows add to the elegance of the structure, and the interior decoration includes hand stenciled walls and ceilings, carved woodwork and seven tiled fireplaces. The house is a testimony to Hackley's wealth, and to an era when Muskegon was known as "Lumber Queen of the World."

    Pere Marquette Beach

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our FREE city park on Lake Michigan has, in my opinion, the most beautiful beach in Michigan.

    The Clean Beaches Council, a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., today awards 53 stretches of sand with a spot on its fifth annual list of "Clean and Healthy Beaches."

    The designations come just four days after a competing non-profit group, the National Healthy Beaches Campaign, based at Florida International University, unveiled its third annual list of "2004 Certified Healthy Beaches." It cited 80 beaches in 17 states and one in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

    Only nine beaches are on both lists. Pere Marquette was one of those beaches.

    The beach is bordered on the north by the Muskegon Channel. It is the northern most end of 2.5 miles of City-owned Lake Michigan frontage. There is a 200’ handicapped walkway on the beach.

    If you are into history and ships/submarines, the Great Lakes Naval Memorial and museum is a must. USS Silversides is a special treat if you can get in on a tour.
