To Do

Crown Hill isn’t just a cemetery. It’s an Indiana landmark, an attraction people can appreciate all year round. The spring blooms are magical, the fall colors breathtaking, the winter landscape a wonder to behold.

Visitors can walk, run, bike, picnic, collect leaves, take a guided tour or enjoy one of our many events.

Events include the Spirit of Freedom, an educational event teaching 1,000 fifth-grade students about African Americans who fought during the Civil War, and six Music of the Night concerts, featuring organists and vocalists performing in the historic Gothic Chapel.

  • The 5-mile loop — the inner perimeter road around the entire cemetery for running, biking or walking.
  • The “Heroes of Public Safety Memorial” walkway.
  • “The Crown”: Bike or hike up to this point for a 360-degree view of the Indianapolis skyline.
