Kalamazoo’s historic Mountain Home Cemetery will get some much-needed attention. A group called the Grave Issues Squad plans to clean some of the markers this summer and fall and inventory them next year.
Mountain Home Cemetery on West Main Street in Kalamazoo dates to about 1850. It is the city’s oldest active burial place. With green, rolling hills, intricate monuments and towering trees, Mountain Home is “absolutely beautiful,” said City of Kalamazoo Historic Preservation Coordinator Sharon Ferraro.
