White Mausoleum

Ralph H. White’s last resting place, designed by architect Willard Sears, looks for all the world like the town hall of a thriving metropolis. The massive cupola, that looks like a bell tower without the bell, is supported by 12 Ionic columns. Circling the top of the dome is a ring of garlands. Punctuating Ralph White’s statement in Classical Revival architecture is an eternal flame, frozen in granite, complete with lightening rod.

R.H. White owned a large Department store that was a Boston area landmark.
