Glenwood Cemetery

Established 1857

Glenwood Cemetery & Arboretum is one of Flint’s treasures because of its history, notable burials, natural beauty, and location along the Flint River. With 47 acres along the south bank of the Flint River and nearly 1,000 trees representing 57 species, you will experience tranquility and inspiration at Glenwood.

The Genesee Valley Trail crosses our eastern edge, connecting Glenwood to the expanded green spaces along the river and into downtown. Walkers, runners, and cyclists are welcome to enjoy Glenwood’s park-like setting and rolling hills. The natural ravines are home to birds, deer, and other wildlife including a bald eagle, so bring your binoculars!

Glenwood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Michigan Register of Historic Places. Many notable burial sites and funerary art examples are found on our grounds. Founded in 1857, we celebrated our sesquicentennial in 2007 and look forward to many more milestones as we care for this treasure into perpetuity.

Glenwood is a non-profit Michigan cemetery corporation exempt by the Internal Revenue Service from tax by section 501(c)(13). All of the Trustees, who serve as the Board of Directors, are volunteers and proud to be part of preserving the cemetery and educating the public on its significance.
