Patrick J. Barry Mausoleum, Calvary Cemetery

A simple and austere Doric mausoleum whose austerity is mitigated by a fine cross-and-palms bronze door and the fairly unusual warm honey color of the stone


James J. Flannery Mausoleum, Calvary Cemetery

A somewhat unusual shape for a classical mausoleum. The bronze door is striking, with an Art Nouveau arrangement of cross and palms.


Moren Mausoleum, Calvary Cemetery

A Doric mausoleum with a wreath in the pediment. The rusticated stone gives the structure, which bears the date 1906, a richness of texture that contrasts well with its simplified Doric entablature.


Donahoe Monument, Calvary Cemetery

An unusual classical monument: a pediment with two columns flanked by curved benches. The effect is something like a gateway, with the repaired cross behind representing the destination.

Classical Architecture

Shepherds’ Rest Mausoleum, Calvary Cemetery

A mausoleum for priests who have gone home. The style is interesting: the overall shape is very much Egyptian, but there are no pagan Egyptian details, and the rusticated stone and Celtic-style uncial inscription are quasi-medieval.
