“Two National Cemeteries within Crown Hill Cemetery: Histories & Their Soldiers”
In following the recommendations of the local government, and in the interest of the safety of our visitors and employees during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our tours and events through the beginning of June, including the public Memorial Day celebration.
Memorial Day is a big day for Crown Hill — a celebration of patriotism, pride, and freedom. A Hoosier fixture for more than 150 years, it is the longest-running Memorial Day ceremony in Indiana. Because we can’t share this amazing event in person this year, we have produced a short patriotic video to celebrate and honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. This video will transport viewers to the past and invite them to reflect on the present. It will be available to view here at 8:00 a.m. EDT on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, and the various Crown Hill social media outlets.
Although we are not able to gather in celebration and remembrance, the cemetery will be open 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. for all those wishing to visit and pay their respects. We will not be passing out flags as we have in the past and our offices and public restrooms will be closed. For those visiting the cemetery, we ask that you practice safe social distancing to ensure the safety of all of our visitors.
