Group offers October tours of historic Detroit cemeteries

DETROIT – Just in time for the haunting month: Detroit cemetery tours.

After a year on hiatus due to COVID-19, Preservation Detroit is offering afternoon tours of the art and architecture of the city’s final resting places.

The cemeteries are the last stops of many historical figures and celebrities such as Rosa Parks, Aretha Franklin and Bernhard Stroh. Elmwood Cemetery has veterans of all wars since the Revolutionary War.

The tours started with Mt. Elliott Cemetery on Saturday. Tours in Elmwood, Mt. Elliott, Mt. Olivet, and Woodlawn will be conducted over the next four Saturdays.

The cost is $ 20 for Preservation Detroit members and $ 25 for others. The money raised through the tours will go to Preservation Detroit’s efforts to preserve the city’s history.
