Hicks Mausoleum, Homewood Cemetery

There is nothing extraordinary about this design; it is just a very well proportioned Doric mausoleum that shows good conservative taste. Mr. Alfred Hicks, its first resident, was a coal baron in the Allegheny valley, and, like many industrialists, also a banker. Being president of a bank seems to have been considered a logical part-time job for a rich industrialist.

  1. I was searching for a bit of family history and came on this. I’m a decedent of Alfred Hicks and a lot of my family is burried here. I’ve never seen this in person but I’ll
    make a trip to Pittsburgh and I’ll get the book. Thank you ! – Jennifer Hicks
