Cemeteries Overview

Our cemeteries offer a final resting place for the deceased in well-maintained green space. The Oakwood cemetery is a historic landmark; many of Northville's founding citizens, leaders and veterans are buried there. The Rural Hill Cemetery is a larger, sprawling park-like setting with plenty of trees and a small lake. It has a special section for veterans. Both cemeteries are maintained by the Department of Public Works. Walkers are welcome but please be respectful of the grave sites and headstones; do not damage the property under penalty of law.  

The City of Northville completed the phase II expansion of Rural Hill Cemetery in late summer 2019 and is now selling plots located in the southern-most section (#44A & 44B).
