Caution this episode looks at the darker side of Muskegon's history and contains themes not suitable for younger audiences.

On the podcast today we dive into the darker side of Muskegon's history and present the history of the Canterbury House, a place where everything goes and where you could find your hearts desires. This house catered to lumberjacks and their needs serving companionship, booze, entertainment, and a fair share of violence.
