PUBLIC TOUR: “SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET, Part II” guided driving tour

October 28, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Please JOIN US for this Sunday afternoon guided driving tour and learn about more SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET!
On this tour we’ll learn about the more sensational stories in the Indianapolis news from the 1860s to the 1970s. A few stops will make will be to learn about the infamous Nancy Clem and the Cold Spring Murders; bank robber John Dillinger; the rising executive slain by his mistress in the 1950s; grave robber Hampton West; the 1977 exploits of kidnapper Tony Kirtsis; Dr. Helene Knabe’s brutal unsolved murder in 1911; and the Marjorie Jackson case of 1977. Of course, there are many others! Note: this is not a creepy tour about ghosts, but a historical tour about some of the people buried at Crown Hill. Participants will drive their own vehicles to each stop.

This is a two-hour public driving tour. Participants will drive their own vehicles to each stop then get out and walk around some. It’s just $5 per adult and $3 per school-age child under 18. There’s no need to RSVP or purchase tickets in advance! Simply 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 if desired. Held rain or shine unless the weather is severe. Very well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome. (You must pick-up after your dog.)
