W.K. Kellogg Manor House

W.K. Kellogg Manor House

Built as a summer home by cereal pioneer W.K. Kellogg in 1925-26, the W.K. Kellogg Manor House is a classic example of Tudor Revival architecture, with leaded glass bay windows, oak-coffered ceilings and beautiful Rookwood tile fireplaces and bathrooms. The Manor House sits 110 feet above Gull Lake with spectacular lake views. The 32-acre Kellogg estate also includes a carriage house, greenhouse with potting shed, a caretaker's cottage, boathouse, an authentic Dutch windmill and picturesque gardens. The estate was donated to Michigan State University upon W.K.'s death in 1951 and is now the historic heart of MSU's W.K. Kellogg Biological Station, renowned for environmental research. The Manor House was restored in 2000 to its original grandeur and is open to the public most weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for free, self-guided tours. Visitors can also enjoy a free self-guided Historical Walking Tour of the estate while learning about the plants on our grounds using a free Botanical Guide. The Manor House is located a few short miles from both MSU's W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary and W.K. Kellogg Experimental Forest, and the Gilmore Car Museum. Please call for additional information or to schedule a guided group tour.
