Scaife Mausoleum, Allegheny Cemetery

The Scaifes are intertwined with the Mellons, making them very rich. This mausoleum was built for them in 1914, and it is still in use: billionaire news mogul Richard Mellon Scaife, who patterned his life after the movie Citizen Kane, is its most recent resident, having been laid to rest here in 2014.

The stained-glass angel inside is very good; Father Pitt regrets that he does not know the artist.
