✵ This event is a FUNDRAISING EVENT for the Crown Hill Heritage Foundation, a public charity which promotes, preserves, restores, and educates about Crown Hill. We thank the Crown Hill Funeral Home for helping the Foundation make these concerts, refreshments, and tours possible!

✵ PUBLIC WALKING TOUR: "Skeletons in the Closet, Part I" - tantalizing facts & incidents!

✵ DESCRIPTION: Was it one of his three wives, or another long-time lover, that Skiles Test kept in a glass coffin in his House of Blue Lights along Fall Creek? Why does one headstone say simply "Mother of Rosalind" and not her full name, which would have been Helen Orr Hufnall Phaff English Wegmann English English Prince Prince? He followed in the footsteps of both his father and grandfather to become bank president, building himself a 40,000 square foot mansion on the east side of town, but by the time Stoughton Fletcher died, he'd lost the house, survived his wife's suicide, a runaway daughter's mysterious death, and was working as a hotel elevator operator in Los Angles when his son committed suicide as well. On this tour we'll discuss their lives and the lives of others who show us that money does not necessarily bring happiness. NOTE: this is not a creepy tour about ghosts, but a historical tour about of some of the people buried at Crown Hill.

✵ TIME: approx. 9:15 pm, following the concert & refreshments

✵ WHERE TO MEET: in front of the Gothic Chapel after refreshments

✵ COST: tour is included in concert fee (see above).

In celebration of Crown Hill's 150th Anniversary, the Crown Hill Heritage Foundation and the Indiana Historical Society are publishing a beautiful coffee table book in Fall 2013.

"CROWN HILL: History, Spirit, Sanctuary" was written by Douglas Wissing, Marianne Tobias, Rebecca Dolan, and Anne Ryder. It features over 400 pages and 600 beautiful photographs by Marty N. Davis and Richard Fields and tells the story of our nation's third largest non-government cemetery from it's founding in 1863 (during the Civil War) until today, with numerous vignettes of individuals and families who rest within its historic Gothic gates.

For ordering information, please contact Marianne Randjelovic at development@crownhill.org or call (317) 920-4165.
