Henry W. Oliver Mausoleum, Allegheny Cemetery

Industrialist and real-estate baron Henry W. Oliver (1840-1904) is buried in a very restrained classical mausoleum, saved from plainness by a series of elegant setbacks in the front. He lived a Horatio Alger story, starting as a telegraph messenger boy at the age of 13, and ending up with a street downtown named after him.
