Soo Township Pine Grove Cemetery


The Pine Grove Cemetery is located in Soo Township, on the corner of 6 Mile Road and Mackinac Trail. The North Branch of the Charlotte River runs through the cemetery. As of January 1, 2010, the Pine Grove Cemetery is owned and operated by Soo Township.

February 23, 1893 was the first meeting of the Pine Grove Cemetery Association. Per articles of the first agreement of the Pine Grove Cemetery, there were nine members on the Board of Directors.

The cemetery was managed by an Association made up of nine Board Members until it officially became owned and operated by Soo Township. Many changes have taken place since it was acquired by the Township. Roads have been improved, dead and overgrown trees have been removed, the task of straightening and leveling of stones has begun, new signage has been installed and a new garage has been built.

On July 18, 1996, the Michigan Historical Commission listed the cemetery in the State Register of Historic Sites. The following Civil War Veterans are buried at Pine Grove Cemetery:

      Robert Grey
      Homer Hodge
      James Jones
      George Daney Strickland

The cemetery is open from April to November, weather permitting.
