Mountain Home Cemetery
Nestled in between West Main and Forbes Streets is Mountain Home Cemetery, located at 1402 W Main St. Across the street you can see Henderson Castle. But if you visit, you won't need to go that far to find beauty and character in abundance. Just take a look at the gently rolling landscape around you and the variety of stones and monuments, large and small. If you look at a Kalamazoo City street map and compare the names to those you see at Mountain Home, you'll find the cemetery not only rich in character, but also very rich in Kalamazoo history. Or maybe you'll want to stop and honor those since passed who have served in the armed forces, usually designated by a small marker and new flag every spring. Started in 1849, the City of Kalamazoo assumed control in 1940. We welcome you to visit our cemetery to reflect, to contemplate, to learn, and to enjoy the peace and beauty Mountain Home Cemetery has to offer.
