100 Years of Art and Culture: Forest Lawn’s Great Mausoleum

Bartholomew Mako

Nestled in the rolling hills of Glendale, California, is the world-renowned cemetery Forest Lawn Memorial Park. Famous for its 300 acres of peaceful beauty and idyllic vistas, one of its unexpected treasures is the Great Mausoleum. This magnificent building features an eclectic array of architectural styles, dozens of freestanding sculptures, and more than 100 stained-glass windows. It was officially inaugurated in 1920, although its origins date back even earlier. The vision for the mausoleum can be attributed to one of Forest Lawn’s early founders Dr. Hubert Eaton (1881–1966).
