Woodlawn Cemetery Walking Tour says
From Detroit’s famous auto barons to music moguls to a survivor of the ill-fated RMS Titanic, Woodlawn Cemetery is full of stories buried just beneath its majestic lawns. Join Detroit History Tours’ Bailey Sisoy Isgro, along with special guest/partner in crime, Jason Marker, as we explore the crown jewel of Detroit’s historic cemeteries. With 120 years of burials in its illustrious history they’ll be plenty to talk about as we wander between the Ford, Dodge, and Whitney mausoleums. We’ll check in on the man who made Detroit the vaudeville capital of the Midwest. We will visit the mayor who once threatened to push a trolley car into the Detroit River. We will try to catch a glimpse of the cemetery’s resident hawks, owls, foxes, and rabbits. We’ll even swing by the final resting place of the family who made Maurice salads, Christmas displays, and white glove service synonymous with shopping in Detroit. In the 120 years of its existence, Woodlawn has become an irreplaceable vault of Detroit’s history, a who’s who of the city’s elite, and a damn fine place for a Saturday stroll. We hope you’ll come along.
