Hamilton Mausoleum* History
This derelict mausoleum is located at a nonsectarian cemetery owned and operated by the state. Earliest burials begin at about 1899, and the cemetery is still being used to this day. The crypt itself kept quite hidden in a thick cluster of trees and overgrowth in the summer; only after peering in can one discern a marble edifice covered in ivy. It seems to have been neglected for a long time, for reasons unknown. Counting the number of spaces, the tomb appears to be able to hold about 160 bodies with additional spaces reserved for urns for the cremated. Many resting places are vacant as most of the remains have been disinterred, but some bodies do remain in this forgotten burial place, only to be desecrated by thieves, vandals, and the occasional animal scavenger.
