Winter Mausoleum, St. John Vianney Parish Cemetery


There is only one mausoleum in this cemetery, but it is an unusually fine one; it looks like an architect-designed mausoleum rather than a dealer’s stock model. The Romanesque arch and pilasters are in exactly the right proportions to the whole, and the carved decoration is beautiful without being ostentatious. It has even kept its bronze doors. The landscaping adds to the picturesque effect: large cedars have grown up on both sides, making the whole plot look like some Norman-era English churchyard.
