Elmwood Cemetery Tour - Detroit

Historic Elmwood Cemetery is steeped in history, art and natural beauty. Please join the hundreds of people each year who tour the Cemetery grounds.  The tours are held in all weather and are 2 hour walking tours starting at 10am.  Tour participants will learn the interesting stories of those laid to rest at Elmwood.  I know Halloween is around the corner, but this is not a haunted tour, it is more of a history tour, appropriate for all ages. There is a $5 per person tour admission charge and you must call to reserve your spot.   Spaces are limited to 30 people per tour and go fast, so I don't recommend waiting. Once those spots are gone, they're gone, I have nothing to do with the limit.  Reservations can be made by calling (313) 801-1971.  At this time, the website does not take reservations, however, I hear they are working on the problem.  Remember to dress for the weather.

After the tour, we'll grab some lunch at a restaurant in the area.

Remember, RSVPing on this site does not guarantee you a spot, you must call the number to pay and reserve your space.

    What a beautiful day for a fabulous tour in an old historic cemetery in Detroit. Elmwood is just beautiful and I was quite impressed to learn how much money Detroit had a long time ago and surprised by how many prominent people lived here. Elmwood Cemetery is a must do for all who live here, but I also recommend reviewing the book written about it before you go.

    I finally reached somebody at the cemetery, ALL THE TOURS FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON ARE SOLD OUT.

    I will call the actual cemetery tomorrow to see if they can give me some answers.

    I also have been trying for several days , both numbers and can't get thru. I'd like to attend if there are any openings. If not can I get a tenative time and location where the group will be meeting for lunch as I'd like the opportunity to attend that.
    Thanks, Kelly[masked]

    I called and left a voice mail at the number above. There is no answer at the other tour RSVP number. No machine, no human.
    Hope this is sufficient. What do you think?

      Karen, there is only one number to call for tickets, and that is the number I listed above[masked]-1971. However, I have left two messages on whether this tour is sold out and have not heard anything as of yet. I'm going to assume this tour is sold out until I hear otherwise.

      I called that same number a couple times last week and didn't reach a person to talk to. From what Donna said I'm assuming that no room is available. I should have called as soon as Donna posted the number!

    Heard this tour may be filled, I'm trying to confirm if there is any more space available.

    • Michele

      If you find availability... let me know. :)

    My brother will be here - with my 3 year old nephew. Can my nephew join us for this event? Or would it not be appropriate?

    October 3, 2013

    • Donna

      Michele, its not a haunted tour, so I see no problem with bringing him. But I'm not sure if they'll charge you for him ( I hope not ) and do you think your nephew will be bored since he is only 3.

  • Donna

    Hey all, don't forget to call and reserve your spot!
