Muskegon Heights is a major southeastern suburb of the greater Muskegon area. It contains a diverse economic base and has its own city government. It is bordered on the north by Muskegon, on the south by Norton shores and on the west by Roosevelt Park.

Itís origin goes back to 1890 when local business leaders were looking to stimulate the economy in the county after the lumber boom ended. They formed the Muskegon Improvement Company which purchased 1000 acres of land. The land was then sold in lots by lottery, with the proceeds used to underwrite new businesses. The plan worked so well it was given a station on the Chicago & Western Michigan Railroad in 1902. With its proximity to Muskegon, the community continued to grow.
