Mt Hope Cemetery
Lansing, Ingham County



The Mt Hope Cemetery is located in Lansing.  It is one of the three Lansing Municipal Cemeteries.  The office is located directly across the street from the Mt. Hope Cemetery at 1709 E. Mt. Hope, Lansing, MI  48910.  517-483-4303.

On April 3, 1871, the people of Lansing voted on a bond issue to purchase the land we know as Mt. Hope Cemetery. A special committee recommended the Miller Farm. The property was purchased from John and Rebecca Miller at a cost of $8,000.

On November 28, 1873, the Cemetery was officially named Mt. Hope Cemetery after a cemetery in New York from where many of the pioneers originally came. Mt. Hope Cemetery is comprised of approximately 82 acres.

There are many interesting and historical interments, monuments and special sites within Mt. Hope Cemetery. Among some of the most interesting are the R.E. Olds Mausoleum, the Spanish American and World War I Veteran Memorial and the Unknown Fireman Monument. Many of Lansing’s dignitaries are interred along the west side of Section F.

Mt. Hope Cemetery is easily recognizable by its famed white arch entrance way that leads visitors through the winding and hilly grounds with large and notable monuments and markers.
