Built during the lumber boom in 1871, the Riblet house was at the height of architectural design. The home survived the Newaygo Fire of 1873. S. K. Riblet was instrumental in prospering the town of Newaygo by helping to bring the main travel route for parts north through Newaygo. During the lumber boom Newaygo was a prime location on the Muskegon River for advancing the lumber industry.
Today, Newaygo remains a quaint little town with big character. The Muskegon River is noted for steelhead, trout, walleye, salmon, and catfish. The area is also an adventure destination for outdoor enthusiasts and has played host to the 2011 National Canoe & Kayak Races on the Muskegon River. For a relaxing vacation the Newaygo area is a perfect hideaway from the big city rush. Located midway between Chicago, IL and Traverse City, MI, on M-37.
