The Lakeshore Museum Center of Muskegon will host flashlight tours of the city’s Hackley and Hume Historic Site on Friday and Saturday.
Visitors will have the chance to explore all five stories of the houses with nothing but a flashlight, although the tour will be guided. Each night, groups of four to 10 people will embark on an hourlong journey through the homes, while guides share eerie stories about the Hackley family and other inhabitants who once lived in the buildings.
“While these aren’t necessarily ‘scary’ tours, we will use the flashlights to share creepy and odd stories about the historic houses,” said Erin Schmitz, program manager at the Hackley and Hume Historic Site. “And we promise no one will jump out and scare you.”
Each night will feature two sessions, one from 7-8 p.m. and another from 8:30-9:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 and available in advance. To reserve a space, guests should call Assistant Program Manager Aaron Mace at (231) 724-5534 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
