Historic cemetery filled with notable Detroiters bearing such names as Ford, Dodge, Hudson, Sanders, Aretha, and Rosa Parks as well as numerous Motown stars, sports celebrities, politicians, automotive executives, businessmen, and more. A beautiful park setting with rolling hills and a pond, this cemetery features beautiful mausoleums replete with stunning stained glass and architecture by some well-known names. On a beautiful day, you can walk and walk and walk, and never tire of the beautiful monuments.

"Back in the day" this was THE place to be buried. . It is still a lovely place for a peaceful drive or walk. A huge cemetery with 71,000 people interred here, it boasts one of the largest numbers of private mausoleums anywhere. A quick google search will give you a list of names of Michigan famous people who are buried here. Very nicely paved roads and most areas have mature shady trees. As with most other cemeteries in this area of Michigan, there are gates surrounding the entire cemetery, and they are closed and locked at sundown (often earlier -- hours are posted). It is still possible for the average person to buy a plot in this cemetery. Peaceful, despite being at the very north edge of the city of Detroit.

I have family buried here, so I visit from time to time to clean their grave markers. The cemetery is generally well maintained, and I found out on my last visit that they will provide shovels to assist in clearing overgrowth of grass around grave markers.

Unfortunately I visited this cemetery recently. I can say that it is a beautiful spot, with many historical headstones of captains of society in the Detroit area.
