A Quick Look at Famous Mausoleums

Funeral Home Oahu

If you are pre-planning a funeral service or cremation ceremony, you may consider having your remains interred in a mausoleum rather than in a burial plot in a cemetery. Originally, mausoleums were created to house the remains of very wealthy or powerful people and their families. Now, many cemeteries and memorial parks have mausoleums on their grounds in which people can be interred. Mausoleums can be found on every continent on earth.

In the United States, one of the most famous mausoleums that still exists is Grant’s Tomb in New York City. It was built in 1897 to house the remains of Ulysses S. Grant. On Honolulu, Hawaii, you can find the Royal Mausoleum of Hawaii. This was built in 1893 to serve as the burial site of a 4-year old prince, and now houses members of 2 of Hawaii’s royal families.
