John A. Kaercher Mausoleum, Allegheny Cemetery

Built in about 1860, this is one of the first wave half-underground mausoleums in the Alegheny Cemetery. It probably had bronze doors originally, but it is easier to keep a brick wall from being stolen. The angel on top is an unusual detail for this type of mausoleum.
