Greenwood Cemetery Tour

1 post in this topic

Every year lately the Grand Rapids Historical Society presents a cemetery tour around this time led by retired attorney Tom Dilley.  If you’ve ever attended one these you know they are really interesting.
 
For some reason they haven’t updated their website for the planned tour this week-end or for any of their upcoming events.  Below is a cut and paste about the tour that I did from a pdf of their latest newsletter.  Like all their programs, there is no charge and you don’t need to be a member.  All you need to do is show up:
 
Taking a Look at the Greenwood Cemetery

September 7 and 8, 2013

10 a.m. both days

Greenwood Cemetery, 1401 Leonard St NW - near Leonard and Walker

Presented by Thomas R. Dilley, GRHS Board Trustee

 

Tom Dilley’s cemetery tours are among the most popular programs from the Grand Rapids Historical Society each year.  This year we’re heading to the northwest side of town to the Greenwood Cemetery.  The 20 acres making up the Greenwood Cemetery were deeded to the city of Grand Rapids by Daniel and Sophronia Bush on February 8, 1859. Like the Oakhill Cemetery tours of past years, Dilley’s tours will tell the stories of important and interesting players in Grand Rapids history and explain the elaborate art and architecture of the monuments to those people.  The tours will take place on Saturday, September 7 and will repeat on Sunday, September 8. Mr. Dilley will use a microphone again this year.

 

In case of severe weather, cancellation will be announced on Grand Rapids Historical

Society’s Facebook page
