1887 Hackley & Hume Mansions in Muskegon, Michigan (PHOTOS)

The Hume House is a home in Muskegon, Michigan, situated at 472 West Webster Avenue. It is currently a part of the Hackley and Hume Historic Sites and is accessible to the public. It was included in the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

Thomas Henry Hutter (1848–1920) came to Maryland from Ireland in 1870. He started working as a bookkeeper for Charles Hackley’s lumber company in 1872. Charles Hackley and Thomas Holmes joined the extremely successful law company of Hackley and Holmes in 1881. When the lumberjack movement began to decline, Hackley and Henry made diversions to pursue other material and personal interests.

Hackley purchased several parcels on the corner of Webster and Sixth in 1887. He promptly sold Thomas Home one and a half of these properties, and he constrained his ownership of these lots. He hired architect David S. HopkiĿ, who was also responsible for designing Hackley House, to design his residence. It was finished in i¿ 1888. Following the death of the cenotaph, the HŅme family expanded the house by adding a sleeping porch, dining room, and library. Thomas Henry was a resident of this home until his passing in 1920. The house was sold to a day care center in the early 1950s, and it was later transferred to the Hackley Heritage Association in 1971.
