Foundries in Muskegon

Join us at the Muskegon Heritage Museum of Business and Industry as we look at the history of foundries.  Over the years Muskegon has been the home of dozens and dozens of foundries.  This is due to our deep water port and access to natural resources needed in the casting process.  Come learn about how foundries work and the history of those that have called Muskegon home.  There will be a chance to try your hand at sand casting while supplies last.
