Fall Landscapes, Highwood Cemetery
Milligan Monument, Highwood Cemetery
A sort-of-classical, sort-of-medieval urn-topped monument for a clergyman (who died on a train crossing Wyoming) and his family. with an epitaph from Deuteronomy. As is almost usual for family monuments from the nineteenth century, it includes the names of several children who did not survive to adulthood.
Taylor-Langfitt Mausoleum, Highwood Cemetery
A small classical mausoleum in very good taste; the Boston ivy is always a picturesque touch, but especially in the fall. The name “Taylor” was added to the pediment later.
Bubb Obelisk, Highwood Cemetery
A typical obelisk from the late 1800s; Rebecca Bubb died in 1896, and Father Pitt suspects that is when the obelisk was raised. It is mostly an excuse to show off a glorious maple tree.
Fall Colors in Highwood Cemetery
A landscape with fall colors in the Highwood Cemetery, which is hilly even by Pittsburgh standards.
