Evans Mausoleum, Homewood Cemetery

The first burial in this mausoleum seems to have been John Duncan Evans in 1921, and we can take that as a good guess at the date of the mausoleum. The style is distinctive: it is more secular Gothic—the Gothic of city gates and guildhalls—than the usual ecclesiastically inspired Gothic found in Pittsburgh mausoleums.
