Shaw Mausoleum, McKeesport and Versailles Cemetery

Yet another mausoleum in this cemetery whose style is hard to define; we shall call it Romanesque, because of the rusticated stone, the medieval columns, and the divided arch in the bronze doors. The huge urn on top is almost cartoonish. Two bronze ornaments flanking the inscription have been stolen, probably to be melted down for their trivial worth in metal.

The earliest interment listed here was in 1896, and the most recent in 2001.
