A mausoleum is a final resting place that provides an above-ground interment within a building-like structure. Often, mausoleums have a vestibule, or entrance room, where family members can visit their loved one in an environment protected from the elements. The mausoleum can contain crypts for caskets, or niches for urns. At Riverside Cemetery, there are options for building personal mausoleums on private lots or selecting existing spaces in the elegant Camellia Mausoleum.
The Camellia Mausoleum offers beautiful marble front crypts and niches in a commanding hillside structure for those who prefer an above-ground option. Built in 1999, it was designed with a covered, open-air veranda perfect for holding services or providing a comfortable place to sit while paying respects to loved ones.
