Public Tour: “HERITAGE” (See the sunset!)

June 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$7 – $10

Our most popular tour! The Heritage 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.

Tour participants will also have an opportunity to enjoy the stunning 360-degree panoramic view of the downtown Indianapolis skyline at sunset (in June, July, and August) 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 walking tour that will cover about one mile at a comfortable pace for most.

Check out this beautiful 360-degree photo by Sergio Bennett of the Indianapolis skyline from James Whitcomb Riley’s memorial on The Crown.

  • Sunset walking tour! This is a walking tour that will cover about a mile at a comfortable pace for most. Participants will see the sunset from the top of the Crown, the highest hill in Marion County with a 360-degree view of the entire city skyline!
