McLaughlin is a culturally diverse neighborhood. Sections of this neighborhood are part of a Historic District of the City of Muskegon with some preserved Victorian era homes. There is a mixture of single and multiple-family homes throughout the area. Hackley Hospital is situated on the southern boundary of the neighborhood. Eleven churches are located throughout the area, as well as numerous doctors’ offices and businesses.

The McLaughlin Neighborhood Association was founded in 1985. McLaughlin was the first neighborhood in the City to have a neighborhood police officer, originating the citywide program for community officers.
