Crown Hill National Cemetery is a United States National Cemetery located in the city of Indianapolis in Marion County, Indiana. It encompasses 1.4 acres (5,700 m2) of Crown Hill Cemetery, and as of the end of 2005, had 795 interments. It is administered by the Marion National Cemetery.
Crown Hill National Cemetery was established on September 25, 1863 as a place to reinter Union soldiers who died in the Civil War camps and hospitals near Indianapolis, which were originally buried in Green Lawn Cemetery. Section 10 of Crown Hill Cemetery is section designated as Crown Hill National Cemetery.
During the war, Camp Morton, located north of Indianapolis, was a large prisoner of war camp, and a section was created in Green Lawn Cemetery to inter those prisoners that died, but after the war they were moved to Crown Hill and interred in a mass grave. The cemetery "was designed by Adolf Scherrer, an Indianapolis architect of Swiss origins. It was completed in November 1885 in time for the funeral of Vice-President Thomas A. Hendricks. This is an excellent example of high Victorian Gothic architectural design."
In 1993 a Confederate Memorial was erected to mark the grave.
Crown Hill Cemetery, including the National Cemetery, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. The National Cemetery portion was listed separately in 1999.
There are many artworks on the property, some of which are free-standing but most of which are associated with a graves site.
