Butler Street Entrance, Allegheny Cemetery


The original entrance gate was designed by John Chislett, who laid out the cemetery; the Administration Building with its clock tower was added in 1870 and expanded in the 1920s. Through it all, the keepers of the cemetery made sure that each new addition formed part of a harmonious whole—which is a difficult thing to do over the course of eight decades of changing fashions.
