NEW VISITOR'S GUIDE & MAP!
Our new Visitor's Guide & Map is a wealth of information! It's a full-color 18" x 22" map with 25 small photos noting the locations of significant structures, important areas, statues, and monuments. When following the list of Notable Persons (bottom left corner) as a self-guided tour, you'll find that it forms a circle tour around the cemetery. The backside (not shown) includes historical information, Crown Hill "By the Numbers," Hours of Operation and Contact information, and the important Mission of the Crown Hill Heritage Foundation. Feel free to download it HERE; pick one up at the Funeral Home & Cemetery Office at our 38th St. entrance (700 W. 38th Street); or take one from the box on the wall next to the front door of the Waiting Station (3400 Boulevard Place), along with our Calendar of Tours & Events brochure, Tree Map, etc. The Waiting Station is the historical (1885) brick building located right inside the 34th Street gate, which was also built the same year.
