SMC Members visit historic Elmwood Cemetery
On August 29th, more than 25 members and guests toured Elmwood Cemetery in Detroit. We were led by Joan Capuano, Executive Director of the Historic Elmwood Cemetery Foundation and SMC member Stewart McMillin. Our tour was arranged by Special Events Chairman James Callahan with assistance from John Snyder, who serves as Treasurer and Member of the Board of Directors of the Historic Elmwood Cemetery Foundation.
Established in 1846, Elmwood Cemetery is the oldest continuously operating, non-denominational cemetery in Michigan. It contains the graves of many prominent men and women including civil war generals, 7 governors, 11 U.S. senators, 30 Detroit mayors, and countless business and community leaders. It is also a certified arboretum with nearly 100 species among its 1,450 trees across its 86 acres.
SMC members who missed the tour may want to consult Elmwood’s web site for information about frequent public tours and events. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS
