Clarence Burleigh Mausoleum, Homewood Cemetery


If this mausoleum looks a bit like a miniature courthouse, then Mr. Burleigh should feel right at home: he earned his greatest fame, or infamy, as the Allegheny County district attorney who prosecuted the Homestead strikers in 1892. He was later Pittsburgh city solicitor for many years. You may ask how a man who devoted his life to public service gained the kind of wealth evident in this splendid Ionic temple; but if you do ask it, it is because you are not very familiar with Pittsburgh.
