Darlington Mausoleum, Allegheny Cemetery

Another variation on the miniature Doric temple; it is not extraordinary, but try to get such a perfectly correct classical mausoleum today. Harry Darlington, Sr., the earliest burial here, died in 1914; this mausoleum was probably built no later than that, and quite likely years earlier, as it was common for rich plot owners to prepare their mausoleums while they were still in the prime of middle age.
