To get to cemetery from East Lansing, take I-96 east to the Okemos Road exit, where you turn north and go slightly more than 2 miles to Mount Hope Highway. Turn left or west onto Mount Hope and go about 1/2 mile. The cemetery will be on your left.
Glendale is well maintained and it is divided into 7 sections, 2 wide by 3 deep, plus 1 large section across the back. Since the sections are unmarked, I have made 1, 3, and 5 on the west side, and 2, 4, and 6 on the east side. Section 7 is large, but has few graves in it at this time breakage.
I walked this cemetery in June of 2005.
