Mount Auburn Mausolea

Note: At the request of Mount Auburn Cemetery, this post has been modified to remove reference to the specific locations of these stained glass windows.

In general, I do not spend a lot of time thinking about Victorian-era gravemarkers. I often walk right past the marble monuments on my way to the slate ones.

Yet, I enjoyed my recent winter walk in Mount Auburn. I particularly enjoyed peeking into mausolea — they're really quite beautiful inside.

Also out of your period, but magnificent in its way, is the Bowman Mausoleum in Cuttingsville, Vermont.
