Recently announced, Preservation Detroit will be restarting their walking tours of some of the beautiful Michigan cemeteries have that Detroit has to offer, as crazy as that might sound. These tours were regular until last year due to COVID-19.

So, why should I be interested in these tours?

Detroit is home to many historic names and figures. These tours offer chances for you to visit the burials of veterans from every war since the revolutionary one. On top of that, you can also see the final resting place of Aretha Franklin and Rosa Parks.

Where are the tours going to be held?

Tours began this past Saturday, at the Mt. Elliot Cemetery. Until the end of this month, tours will be conducted at other cemeteries such as Woodlawn, Elmwood, as well as a repeat of the Mt. Elliot Cemetery.
