W.K. Kellogg Manor House is the former estate of cereal magnate W.K. Kellogg and his wife, Dr. Carrie Staines Kellogg. Built on the highest point overlooking Gull Lake in 1925-1926, the Manor, surrounding grounds, and building offer awe-inspiring views and historic grandeur. In 1952 the home and surrounding property were donated to Michigan State University and became the home base for the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station. The Manor House was restored to its original grandeur in 2000. The home is rich in history and can be visited for tours, programs, or private event rentals.
