Flint's Back to the Bricks organizers are planning a cemetery tour on the last day of this year's weeklong car show.
The tours will be on Aug. 17 at Glenwood Cemetery. The gravesites can be seen there of several people who built the auto industry, and those who shaped the city.
Back to the Bricks founder Al Hatch says the cemetery is one of the oldest in Genesee County. Among those buried at Glenwood is Jacob Smith, who is the city's founder.
The cemetery's superintendent is Peter Lemelin. He says the free tours won't be guided but actors in period costumes will be on hand to discuss Flint's history.
