My grandmother is laid to rest in this cemetery. The gravestones reflect a lot of history. It is truly a tribute to those who have passed away so many years old.

This cemetery is beautiful, especially when trees are flowering in the spring, or leaves are in color in the fall. The older sections have beautiful monuments. Ask for a map at the office, as you enter, especially if you are interested in some of the historically important people buried there.

This is the resting place of hundreds of Detroit notables. Political and artistic personages of the past. The Dodge Brother Mausoleum is amazing.
