Photo of Mountain Home Cemetery with text that reads Walking Tour of Mountain Home Cemetery.

For over 170 years, Mountain Home Cemetery has interested and intrigued many with its rolling hills and unique tombstones.

The cemetery is filled with familiar names from Kalamazoo’s history, some of whom played important roles in the early years of Kalamazoo Public Library. Lynn Houghton, Regional History Curator of the WMU Archives and Regional History Collections, will lead a 90-minute tour around the area focusing on the cemetery’s history, architecture, design, and symbolism.

For the most part the tour will be on paved walks and will be canceled if there is thunder and lightning.

Meet at the Sexton’s Lodge just inside the cemetery entrance.
