The Administration Building

Crown Hill Cemetery has had four administrative office buildings since its dedication in 1864. The current facility stands just inside the Clarendon Road entrance to the North Grounds. Its construction began in July 1968 and was completed the following year.

The Crown Hill Funeral Home, an extension onto the northern end of the Administration Building, was dedicated in the spring of 1993. This beautiful facility allows families to have their loved ones’ funeral and burial in one location.


  • The first administration building was destroyed by fire in 1876.
  • Peter Routiers, the constructor of the building, also built the Gothic Chapel.
  • The second administration building stood near the original main entrance on what is now Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Street.
