B. F. Jones Monument, Allegheny Cemetery

This monument actually marks an underground mausoleum, which sounds like a wonderful opportunity for a setting in a Gothic novel. Benjamin Franklin Jones was the Jones of Jones & Laughlin. This monument was put up in 1897, six years before Jones died, so he was able, like a pharaoh, to supervise the construction of his final resting place.
