Perhaps Crown Hill’s most noted monument, certainly its most touching, is not the one for President Benjamin Harrison. Nor is it the prominent memorial for James Whitcomb Riley at the summit of Crown Hill. It is likely the monument for a girl who died at the tender age of 5 ½ years old, a statue that is the very likeness of Mary Ella McGinnis, born December 15, 1869.
Back to normal … at least the new normal. This past year, we were encouraged as we began to see many visitors back at Crown Hill. While we were not able to host any large in-person events, we were able to bring back our public tours, most of which sold out! In addition to bringing back public tours, we also launched a new app that allows people to take their own self-guided tour.
