Resurrecting the Glen Arbor Cemetery

Learn about the history of the Glen Arbor Township Cemetery, which served the Glen Lake area from 1880-1927, and the renewed effort to reclaim this long-neglected resting place. Linda Alice Dewey, chair of the Glen Arbor Township Cemetery Advisory Board, will describe the discoveries gleaned from this ongoing journey and the latest developments, including the use of ground penetrating radar to locate 40+ unmarked graves. She will also provide profiles of the people buried there, and discuss the ongoing assistance of Glen Lake School students in this initiative.
