Heinz Mausoleum, Homewood Cemetery


This magnificent Roman temple holds more dead people than any other mausoleum in the Homewood Cemetery, with an extensive basement accessible by a removable section of mosaic floor. (How’s that for a scene in a Gothic novel?) H. J. Heinz, the pickle and ketchup king, and generations of his descendants are buried here, including his great-grandson Senator John Heinz.

Addendum: The architects of the mausoleum were Vrydaugh & Wolfe, who also designed Warwick House for Howard Heinz.
