Remembering Charles Henry Hackley

Hackley Public Library > News > Remembering Charles Henry Hackley

Today we remember a man who did many wonderful things for Muskegon, including helping to bring Hackley Public Library to life!

Charles Hackley passed away on February 10, 1905.

On February 12, 1905, the rotunda of HPL’s second floor (now the Youth Services department) served as the viewing area for the body of Charles Hackley. Over 7,000 people came to the library to pay their last respects. Mourners filled the room, trailed down the staircase, out through the entrance archway, and into the street.
