Carl Fisher's Grave

Recommended Posts

Again, I would like to thank the Roadmavens for taking me out to Indianapolis' Crown Hill Cemetery April 24th. That is one HUGE place.


A highlight was seeing Carl Fisher's grave which is in a small vault. Unfortunately, there is just the name Fisher on it and nothing anywhere else that would indicate his prominence. That is too bad for someone with such a huge impact on Indianapolis with the Dixie Highway and the Speedway, and, of course, the US in general with the Lincoln Highway and Miami Beach.


It would be great to have a marker erected for the general public and for roadfolk to easier locate it (near President Harrison's grave) when making pilgrimages.
