Established in 1895, historic Woodlawn Cemetery
is a “time capsule of Detroit history,” according to authors A. Dale Northrup and Alice Roker. One of the most prestigious cemeteries in the country, Woodlawn is centrally located on 138 beautiful acres in Detroit, featuring over 150 private estates, one of the largest collections in the country.
Woodlawn’s monuments and private mausoleums are considered to be stunning works reflecting Greek, Roman and Egyptian revival architectural styles. and our winding roads, stately foliage, and shimmering ponds create a serene and reflective park-like setting.
