Receiving Vault, Allegheny Cemetery

This Receiving Vault was built in 1906 after the old one, which was in a different location, was taken down. According to the cemetery’s Web site, this design by Peter Charles Reniers’ Sons more or less duplicated the design of the original Receiving Vault by John Chislett, the architect who laid out the cemetery in the 1840s.
