Numerous figures from U-M’s history — from the time of the University’s relocation to Ann Arbor in the 1830s to the recent past — are interred in Forest Hill Cemetery, located near the Observatory. Learn about such individuals as football player George Jewett, U-M’s first African American player; longtime U-M president James B. Angell; famed conductor Eva Jessye; the Detroit Observatory’s own James Craig Watson; and many more. We look forward to sharing university history with you at this unique and scenic setting.

Please be advised that the tour involves steep hills and potentially walking through grass, both of which could make this walking tour a challenge for some. This walking toward starts at the Detroit Observatory.

Advance registration optional
