Built in 1887-89, this massive Queen Anne style house served the Thomas Hume family through four generations. The architecture for this, as well as the Hackley house,
was David S. Hopkins of Grand Rapids. The structure behind the two buildings was shared by both families. Known as the City Barn, it reflects the features of each house. Though larger than the Hackley house, the Hume house is less pretentious in detail. One hundred years after completion, the Hackley & Hume Historic Site was administered by the Muskegon County Museum.
