“Great history”

W. K. Kellogg Manor House
Reviewed 1 November 2012

Great place to tour to get a sense of local history and see how the other half lived. Now part of MSU, it's a lovely place in the summer with the flower gardens and grounds. Take advantage of the teas they have. The service and food is wonderful.

This non-profit excels at offering those quaint teas with exquisite little morsels while tantalizing one with a topic of interest. Sometimes my friends just attend for the scrumptious desserts. LOL Don't miss the Christmas decorations and gift items for sale. They even offer a manors class for children. Over looking Gull Lake this is a real treasure.

We toured the Kellogg Manor House during our area's annual Arts and Eats Tour. The docent was knowledgeable and shared much information about how the house (built in 1925) has changed hands over the years, from its original designation as a summer home, through its donation to the Coast Guard in 1942 as an induction and training center, to its use as a rehab estate for wounded veterans after WW II. Upon WK's death in 1951, the Manor House and its 32-acre estate were given to Michigan State University, and the Kellogg Biological Station was created. In 2000 the Kellogg Manor House was restored to its original state. We enjoyed the tour of its 12,000 feet.

Occasionally they do free tours which is when we went through. We were very impressed with the workmanship of the rooms, the location, and landscaping. The guide was very informative and we learned some things about the Kellogg clan.
