Description - Crown Hill Cemetery by W C Madden

Indianapolis' Crown Hill Cemetery is noted for its unique beauty and historic significance. Dedicated on June 1, 1864, the cemetery, at more than 555 acres, is the final resting-place to over 185,000 citizens and is one of the most historically significant areas in the city. Many of the country's great leaders, soldiers, entrepreneurs, and artists are buried within the cemetery's confines including: President Benjamin Harrison, Col. Eli Lilly, and the infamous John Dillinger, to name just a few. Within these pages of vintage photographs, the history and beauty of Crown Hill Cemetery is revealed. Author W.C. Madden examines such structures as the inspiring Waiting Station and Gothic Chapel, both of which were built in the 1800s. He also details the ground's viscerahl history exemplified by the National Cemetery, dedicated to those who served our country, and the Confederate lot on the cemetery's south grounds.
