Not a Room with a View this week, but rather a Tomb with a View. That of Hoosier poet and longtime Lockerbie Square resident, James Whitcomb Riley keeps watch over Indianapolis from atop the highest natural point within the pre-UniGov city limits, the “Crown Hill” of Crown Hill Cemetery, on the city’s near northwest side.
What do you love about this solemn spot?
Valuing = Supporting
Publishing HI every day is more than just a ’labor of love‘ (though we do love it), but takes hundreds of hours each month to create. If you are entertained, inspired, better informed, feel more connected with Indy or just value what you discover here, please consider becoming a supporting member with a recurring monthly donation.
Or, become a one-time supporter with a single donation in any amount you choose.
