We were drawn to visit Crown Hill Cemetery because President Benjamin Harrison and author Booth Tarkington (Penrod stories) are buried in the cemetery. While there, we also found the impressive hilltop monument to poet James Whitcomb Riley as well as the gravesites of Col. Eli Lilly, Richard Gatling, and John Dillinger. A beautiful chapel also resides on the grounds. Upon entering the cemetery, we drove to the office where a very helpful woman provided us with information for a self-guided tour. On a pretty day, a visit to Crown Hill will satisfy the history lover. Others may like it for the serenity.
