Take a guided tour of one of the most historic cemeteries in the Detroit area. Tickets are $20 for Detroit Historical Society members and $30 for non-members.

Since its founding in 1867 by a group of prominent Detroit businessmen, Woodmere Cemetery has remained one of Detroit’s “most beautiful treasures,” according to author Gail Hershenzon. Accessible through an historic main entrance on West Fort Street, Woodmere features 250 acres with gently rolling hills and mature trees and a pond that once was fed by Baby Creek. The cemetery has three garden mausoleums in addition to a chapel mausoleum. Notables such as Scripps, Bacon, Finney and many more are interred here.

* This tour requires approximately 2 miles of walking over uneven terrain.
