The Historical Walking Tour at Crown Hill Cemetery will take you on a historical stroll through Salem’s rich history.
Not only will visitors be informed of our town’s historical background during the tour, but they will also have the opportunity to meet some of Salem’s most well-known citizens of the past.
Our knowledgeable tour guides will introduce you to ten of the most interesting, eccentric (and sometimes infamous) characters buried in Salem’s Crown Hill Cemetery.
We will be offering the option of two separate tours, each containing its own collection of characters, so guests can do a different tour each night or both in the same evening. Tours will be able to leave more frequently because we will offer the tours at the same time.
Date: September 20th and 21st
Time: The first tour will depart at 8:00 while there is a little light left outside for those who might not want to walk in complete darkness. Groups will leave about every 10-15 minutes, and the last group will leave at 11:00 p.m.
Place: Crown Hill Cemetery, 207 Shelby St., Salem, IN
Cost: Donations only, all proceeds go to Washington County Theatre.
Each tour will be approximately 30 to 45 minutes and cover about 1/2 mile on paved pathways. All groups will be led by tour guides and lanterns will be provided after sunset. We will send groups of no more than 20 individuals on each tour.
This walking tour is a fun event for all ages. **This tour is NOT haunted.** You will simply be meeting characters from the past who are buried in Crown Hill Cemetery.
