Pine Grove Cemetery

Historical MarkerPine Grove Cemetery is located two miles west and one-half mile north of Auburn, on the northwest corner of Eleven Mile and North Union Roads.  It is township owned.


In 1868, the Williams Township Board of Health authorized a township burial ground and voted to purchase land for that purpose.  The cemetery was surveyed and platted in 1875 although burials had been made before that time.  Each "lot" had spaces for six burials and sold for $5.00. 

The cemetery contains seventy 19th century graves; the oldest is dated 1871. The center lot of the original plat is the "Soldiers' Mound", where Memorial Day services are held. 


Pine Grove cemetery was recognized as a historic site on October 12, 1990 and is listed in the Michigan State Register of Historic Sites by the Michigan Historical Commission.
