Cemetery Tour / Hidden Heroes

SAT, SEP 23, 2023 / Timed Entry 1 - 2:40 PM
at Midland Municipal Cemetery (3220 Orchard Dr, Midland MI)

Midland County Historical Society is happy to continue its county cemetery tour series. Join us at the Midland Municipal Cemetery for a walk of the grounds. Along the way, we will meet hidden heroes of Midland history as you are introduced to some folks who made an impact on our community in their own special ways, including the man who would skate up and down the Tittabawassee River to bring supplies and mail to early Midland. Featured individuals will be portrayed by costumed performers who will share these sometime overlooked, very important people, and their stories. This event is held rain or shine.

Cemetery Tour / 150th Anniversary of the Midland Cemetery

SAT, OCT 28, 2023 / 12 - 1:40 PM (Timed Entry Every 20 Minutes)
at Midland City Cemetery  (3200 Orchard Dr., Midland, MI)

Celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Midland Cemetery in its current location with a guided tour of the oldest portions. By the time the current cemetery was created in 1873 the county was 18 years old and the village of Midland already had cemetery. Come learn why our citizens chose to move the cemetery and hear some stories about Midlanders who had to be evicted from their original grave sites and reinterned at the cemetery. This event is held rain or shine. Be sure to check out the Halloween Bash at the Center as well!
