View of Muskegon, Muskegon County, M.I., 1889 / drawn & published by E. S. Glover.

This panoramic view print of Muskegon, Michigan was drawn and published by E. S. Glover, Shober Carqueville Lith. in 1889. Muskegon was settled in the late 1830's on the banks of Muskegon Lake off Lake Michigan. The Muskegon River gave transportation vessels easy access to the shipping wharves built along the lakefront at that point.

Muskegon had a thriving lumber industry during the late 1800's with dependable transportation abilities by either ship or railroad. Numerous saw mills and lumber supporting industries were located at Muskegon during this era.

The map, looking east, includes labeled streets, buildings, waterways, railroad routes and wharves. A steamer of the Goodrich Transportation Co’s fleet is prominently shown on the lake. The population of “The Coming Metropolis of Western Michigan” is noted as 34,000 in 1889. It features inset illustrations of the following:

• Muskegon Car Company’s Works.
• The Hackley Library.
