What Bert Has To Say About Muskegon Metro Area

Strategically located on Michigan’s west shoreline, Muskegon is an old economic powerhouse dating back to the mid-19th century. The economic strength was then driven by lumber and shipping. As the 20th century unfolded, lumber declined and was replaced by diverse manufacturing, with good access to auto markets to the east and a number of major manufacturing markets across Lake Michigan. As a manufacturing center specializing in foundries and machining, the area declined somewhat in the last half of the 20th century but has enjoyed a resurgence due to its attractive summer climate and extensive water and beach amenities.
