I love out the various mausolea interact with each other, sneaking into each others’ shots, hiding partially behind trees or hillocks.

This monument stood out to me, with an almost Baroque decorative element on top of it, such as I have seen at the Zwinger in Dresden, Germany.

The Duncan Monument is likewise an interestingly proportioned and elegantly carved spire of stone.

John J. Mitchell was a railroad magnate, obviously one of many in the cemetery.

His Gothic Revival mausoleum features one of the more beautiful sculptures in the area, that of a mourning woman standing on the apex of the roof.
