Nature in the City
When you pass through the gates of Crown Hill Cemetery, you’ll be awestruck by the majesty of the nature. Described by visitors as “the single best place for tree lovers in the city” and having “the best leaf collection in town,” Crown Hill is home to 4,156 inventoried trees, “many of them big, old and uncommon.”
The grounds of Crown Hill have evolved from dense forest to farm, rural cemetery, modern cemetery and urban green space. The cemetery’s founders chose a breathtaking place in a serene setting for burials. They planned a place for visitors that would offer the serenity of a park where tombstones blend into the landscape. We invite you to experience the natural beauty of Crown Hill Cemetery 365 days a year.
