WOODLAWN CEMETERY…….Stained Glass Windows

The 1300 MAUSOLEUMS in the Woodlawn Cemetery [in the Bronx] are now part of a Historic Landmarks by the National Parks Service.  Since its inception in 1863 it is a non-sectarian place of burial.  Lot owners include artists, writers, business moguls, entertainers, jazz musicians and so many more.

Each of the MAUSOLEUMS have a stained glass window adding to the beauty of the interior………a place to sit and meditate and commune with the deceased.

Some of these architectural treasures are:

Armour  • Bache  • Belmont • Borden • Garvan •  Gould • Hackett   Harbeck • Harkness • Huntington • Leeds • Straus • Taylor  Untermyer • Woolworth
