tour Harbor Place
Harbor Place is a beautifully restored 1909 house, centrally located in the downtown Muskegon historic district, at 1148 Fourth Street. It is a welcoming and pleasant setting, retaining the comfort and warmth of a home rather than an office building. It is a beige stucco four story house with a colorful history.
The story of Harbor Place began in 1909 when Mary Todd Larwill of Muskegon, Michigan commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design a home for her. He took on the project and the building is cited in a book listing Mr. Wright's works. However, when the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation was contacted for verification, it was learned that he did not design the building because "1909 was not a good year for Mr. Wright." Apparently, 1909 was the year Frank Lloyd Wright left the country to live in France with the wife of one of his clients. Mrs. Todd Larwill’s house was designed by one of the associates who took over Mr. Wright's projects.
Mrs. Todd Larwill was a 65 year old widow when she moved into her new home. She occupied what is now called Harbor Place with her unmarried adult son, her adult daughter and son-in-law. After its original owners, Harbor Place has experienced many functions, from dance studio to apartments and now psychological services.
