Notorious 313 Lost Love, Found LoveThis Notorious 313 tour takes us back to historic Woodmere Cemetery where Gail D. Hershenzon will regale us with eternal love stories among those buried in the cemetery.

Some love stories will warm our hearts as they are the feel good, happily ever after types of love. Other love stories are tragic, full of despair and eternal longing. Ms. Hershenzon, author of Detroit’s Woodmere Cemetery, has spent countless hours organizing the records of Woodmere Cemetery which will celebrate its 145 anniversary in July 2014.

We also offer Notorious 313 Walking Tours (Foreboding Fort Street, Ghastly Greektown & Midtown Unmasked) and Bus tours. Click here for details.
