You Won't Believe the History Buried Beneath This Spot in Indy

The history of Indianapolis and even much of Indiana is literally buried within the gates of Crown Hill Cemetery. For those Indiana history buffs wishing to pay their respects to famous (and sometimes infamous) Hoosiers, or to their own relatives, an afternoon trip to Crown Hill Cemetery is a must-do excursion during warmer months.

Indiana AIDS Memorial

The Indiana Aids Memorial was dedicated in 2000 by the Indiana aids Fund, the Joseph. F. Miller Foundation, and Crown Hill Cemetery to honor those who suffered and are suffering from HIV and AIDS. The first permanent memorial of its kind in the United States, the Indiana AIDS Memorial features names of Hoosiers who died of the disease in the 1980s and 1990s. The memorial is located in section 89.
