I love to go through it quite often. The founding fathers of Kalamazoo are here. Both Old and New monuments, just a treat to walk through! Friendly residents!

This cemetery is by my neighborhood. It is an older cemetery, with some headstones dating to the 1800's. There is a bit of history here for the town of Kalamazoo. The terrain is fairly hilly but the cemetery itself isn't on as much land as...More
