Restored

Historic and beautiful Crown Hill Cemetery received a substantial bequest in 2011, giving the Crown Hill Heritage Foundation the means to step up its efforts to restore and preserve some many of the monuments in the older sections of the cemetery that were in dire need. My thanks go out to both the CH Heritage Foundation and to its generous benefactor!

 

My favorite monument in the entire cemetery is the Eastman Angel, and you cannot imagine my delight when I saw that he has been cleaned up and refreshed. Indiana weather and winters are really hard on marble monuments, but with this kind of attention, I hope he'll be around to inspire and comfort for generations to come!
