PUBLIC TOUR: “DILLINGER & EASTSIDE NOTABLES” Guided Walking Tour (See the Sunset!)
July 28, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$5.00
The “Dillinger & Eastside Notables” guided walking tour includes the sections just north of the Waiting Station, which is a part of the cemetery not regularly covered on other walking tours. Bank robber John Dillinger’s grave will, of course, be one of our destinations. We will also stop at the graves of many other interesting and important people, and others – although unknown – have memorialized themselves with some rather unique monuments. This side of the cemetery features a number of beautiful angel statues and a couple of big lions. (The top photo was taken on this tour while the group was visiting the memorial for Indianapolis 500 race car driver and car owner Tony Bettenhausen Jr. and his wife Shirley, who died in a tragic plane crash on Valentine’s Day 2000.)
This is a two-hour sunset walking tour that will cover about one mile at a comfortable pace for most It’s $5 per person and there’s no need to RSVP. Plentiful free parking is available. Meet the tour guide right inside the 34th St. Gothic stone gate at 3400 Boulevard Place. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early. A restroom will be available before the tour if you arrive 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.
