The Lakeshore Museum Center will host a walking tour that shares stories about Muskegon.

Legends and Lore will take walkers on a nighttime exploration of Muskegon’s city streets focused on stories of a mayoral assassin, a notorious gangster and a serial bomber. Each story will be told at locations where the alleged event took place.

In addition to these tales, guests will get to see and learn about notable buildings, events and residential homes from Muskegon’s history.

“It’s the perfect season to explore the darker side of Muskegon history,” said Jackie Huss, program manager for the Lakeshore Museum Center. “Guests are often surprised by the legends surrounding our county. While not all of the tales are 100% true, they certainly make for a good story.”

The event is scheduled for 5:30-7 p.m. Oct. 8 at the museum. Since it is an outdoor tour, guests should dress for the weather and consider bringing an umbrella. Space is limited to 15 people, and social distancing will be expected.

Those interested can purchase tickets for $15 each ($13 for museum members). Tickets are available inside the museum store or on Eventbrite.
