Robert Pitcairn Mausoleum, Homewood Cemetery

Robert Pitcairn, for whom the borough of Pitcairn is named, was head of the Pittsburgh Division of the Pennsylvania Railroad. It sounds like a mid-level management position, but in fact it was more like a viceroyalty. This elegant Corinthian temple demonstrates how wealthy such a position could make a man.
