Painter Mausoleum, McKeesport and Versailles Cemetery

This imposing Ionic mausoleum stands in its own circular plot with a commanding view of the valley below. It is a common sort of classical mausoleum, and yet it seems different enough from the classical constructions in the Pittsburgh cemeteries to remind us that we are in McKeesport, which is a different world. The first Painter took up residence here in 1902, so the mausoleum dates from that year or before.
