Letter from the President – December 2020
History is made every day. This is especially apparent in what we’ve all experienced over the course of 2020. The Crown Hill Heritage Foundation had to adapt as well. While many of our tours and events for the year were cancelled, we were still able to meet our mission of celebrating Crown Hill Cemetery in creative ways.
For example, instead of arranging a large in-person gathering on Memorial Day, we were able to keep the 152-year tradition alive by creating a virtual way to honor our soldiers. In celebration of the city’s bicentennial, we created a brand new, self-guided bicentennial tour. In addition to this, we were able to continue preserving the natural beauty of our heritage through our Memorial Tree Program and several donor-funded historic preservation projects.
I ask you to partner with us by using the button below to make your gift and join us in our mission as we preserve and celebrate Crown Hill Cemetery!
