  • John Worthington Mausoleum, Homewood Cemetery

    Mr. Worthington, an oil baron, chose to be buried in an unusual Gothic tower, more castle-like than chapel-like. It is particularly notable for its inscription, which is nearly unique in using quasi-medieval letters on quasi-medieval architecture. (Most Gothic monuments use plain “gothic” characters like the ones used in advertising signs of the era.)
