Bourne Mausoleum


Massive and imposing, the Bourne Romanesque Revival mausoleum looks like its here to stay. Ornamentation is almost nonexistent except for an oversized keystone worked into the doorway and a few round sandstone caps that look like stone porthole covers. Hallmarks of Romanesque Revival architecture as seen in the Bourne mausoleum are the heavy buttresses and a rounded arch with a deep reveal forming the entry.
