This tour presents the history of Crown Hill Cemetery while visiting the graves of some of the many interesting people buried here, both the famous and not so famous, recent and long gone. A variety of monuments will be seen, including some of our most recognized statues. The William H. English family monument and circle lot (pictured here) will be included and tour participants will learn about the fascinating history of the prominent English family, owners of the beautiful English Hotel and Opera House, located on the northwest quadrant of Indianapolis’ Monument Circle in the late 1800s and early 1900s. (This is just one of the many interesting stops we’ll make on this popular tour. Click on the PDF file above for a list of other stops we may visit.) Tour participants will also have an opportunity to enjoy the stunning 360-degree panoramic view of the downtown Indianapolis skyline at sunset from the tomb of the famous Hoosier Poet, James Whitcomb Riley, high atop beautiful Crown Hill. This tour captures highlights from many of our other tours and is interesting for all ages. Highly recommended!
This is a 2-hour walking tour that will cover about one mile at a comfortable pace for most. $5 per person. Lots of free parking available. Meet the tour guide right inside the 34th St. Gothic stone gate at 3400 Boulevard Place. Please arrive 10 minutes early. Wear comfortable walking shoes, dress for the weather, and bring bottled water and insect repellent if desired. Held rain or shine unless the weather is severe. Little ones in strollers and very well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome. (Note that you must pick up after your dog.) (This tour will be repeated on August 19 and October 22.)
