Welcome to the City of Whitehall
Muskegon County, Michigan
The City of Whitehall (population 2,706 as of the 2010 Census) is a unique blend of old-fashioned small town and progressive, full-service city. Whitehall is located in northern Muskegon County, five miles from the Lake Michigan coastline on White Lake. Although much of its economy is tourist-related, especially it's extended marina on the lake; it also contains some small businesses and manufacturing facilities. It is a commuter town to the greater Muskegon area just ten miles to the south.
Whitehall's recorded history began around 1859 when Charles Mears, a noted lumber baron to the area, platted the village along with Giles B. Slocum, naming it Mears. The population continued to grow due to its strategic location for floating and distributing lumber.
In 1862, it was renamed Whitehall and incorporated as the Village of Whitehall in 1867. It later was incorporated as a city in 1943.
