On today's special episode in partnership with the Michigan Irish Music Festival and their Hackley Hooley event on September 18th, we take a look at the history of the most famous Irishmen to call Muskegon home, Thomas Hume. Business partner to Charles Hackley, Thomas Hume would in his life acquire millions, much of which was given back to the community of Muskegon. We will also be releasing a podcast on the history of Irish settlers in Muskegon County so make sure to check that episode out too.
