Elmwood Cemetery Detroit
Detroit Garden Center will host a guided tree and history tour of Elmwood Cemetery. This popular event is always a highlight for DGC participants. Chancey Miller, Elmwood historian, and Cheryl English, Advanced Master Gardener, team up to share the history of Michigan’s leading citizens interred in the cemetery and discuss some of the over 80 species of trees. The second oldest of Detroit’s cemeteries, Elmwood retains the settlement’s orginal rolling terrain and waterways.
The Elmwood Cemetery is located at 1200 Elmwood, an extension of McDougall Ave., just north of E. Lafayette and two blocks north of East Jefferson Ave. The orange roofed church on the northeast corner of
E. Lafayette and Elmwood is a good landmark. (Church is located across the street from Detroit’s Martin Luther King Jr. High School). The driveway north of the church leads into the cemetery. (Do not Google for directions because it will not lead to to the cemetery. It is best to just follow the above directions.)
Please note there are NO rest room facilities avaiable.
