R. T. Carothers Mausoleum, McKeesport and Versailles Cemetery

Father Pitt would guess that this mausoleum might have originally had a bronze door, which was replaced by the stone in front. If that is so, the replacement is very well and very expensively done, though it does not really match the style of the mausoleum. It is much more delicate than one would expect from a rugged rustic mausoleum like this: the inscription, in particular, clashes with the lettering on the lintel.
