Elmwood Endures: History of a Detroit Cemetery
Elmwood Cemetery is one of the oldest places of burial in Detroit. Less than two miles from downtown, the cemetery's archaic stone monuments are a treasure of artistic carvings, characteristic of the rural cemetery movement. Elmwood's tranquil setting inspires contemplation of nature, life, and death.
Elmwood Endures provides a visual journey of the cemetery's history and landscape. The guidebook features nearly one hundred photographs, along with brief biographies of notable occupants who make up a virtual who's who in Detroit history. Many of those buried—governers, explorers, doctors, mayors, inventors, senators, civil rights leaders, distillers and brewmasters, and civil war generals—helped found and shape the city.
A celebration of an important Detroit landmark, Elmwood Endures reveals Detroit's rich and interesting history.
