About the Manor House
Built beginning in 1925 and completed in 1927 on the highest point overlooking beautiful Gull Lake, the Manor House was once the summer home of W.K. Kellogg. The Manor House’s mission is to share with the public Kellogg’s legacy of philanthropy as well as information about the research undertaken at the Kellogg Biological Station. The Manor House hosts special events to further support KBS’s research and education mission, and is available to tour independently year-round or with a docent by appointment.
