W.K. Kellogg Manor House and Gardens

Close to Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, the Kellogg Manor House is a wonderful day trip for those interested in the history of the area, of Michigan, and of W.K. Kellogg and his philosophy of philanthropy and education.

Information
The W. K. Kellogg summer estate was built in 1925 - 1926 on the highest point overlooking Gull Lake. Kellogg and his second wife, Dr. Carrie Staines, designed a Tudor style house on 32 acres of eroded cornfield. The site also includes a Carriage House with chauffeur residence, a Greenhouse with potting shed, a Caretaker Cottage, a Boathouse, an authentic Dutch windmill and a lakeside Pagoda. On October 6, 1951, W.K. Kellogg passed away, and the following year, the foundation gave the estate to Michigan State College, now MSU. In 2000 the Manor House was restored and the house is once again a beautiful and stately residence in a lovely lakeside
setting.
