CELEBRATING 150 YEARS with “CROWN HILL: History, Spirit, Sanctuary”
In celebration of Crown Hill's 150th Anniversary, Crown Hill Heritage Foundation and Indiana Historical Society Press have published a fantastic coffee table book that’s been chosen as the SILVER PLACE WINNER in Foreward Review's prestigious "BOOK OF THE YEAR" Contest in the Regional Category!

CROWN HILL: History, Spirit, Sanctuary is a beautiful 380-page coffee table book which tells the story of our nation's third largest non-government cemetery from it's founding in 1863 (during the Civil War) until today. Authors Douglas Wissing, Marianne Tobias, Rebecca Dolan, and Anne Ryder cover many topics including extensive history, personal and poignant stories, natural history, and numerous vignettes of individuals and families who rest within its historic Gothic gates. It features over 600 beautiful, full color photographs by Marty N. Davis and Richard Fields, including a number of aerial photos of Crown Hill that will capture your attention as they allow you to see Crown Hill as you've never seen it before! Author Douglas Wissing beautifully weaves together 150 years of Crown Hill history with local and state history, creating the context which allowed Crown Hill to become the "City on the Hill" - the final resting place of many of our pioneers, civic leaders, politicians, musicians, actors, artists, automotive manufacturers and Indianapolis 500 notables, military and public safety heroes, and countless others.

CROWN HILL: History, Spirit, Sanctuary is available for purchase at the Crown Hill Funeral Home and Cemetery office during regular office hours or may be ordered off of either website. The total cost is $40 per book, or $50 if mailed. You may also order you copy by phone or by mail for $40 each and pick your book up at the Funeral Home and Cemetery office Monday-Friday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm. For more information, please contact Marianne Randjelovic at development@crownhill.org or call (317) 920-4165.
