The Marion Mausoleum represents a time in early 20th-century
America in which burial practices changed because of advances in
engineering and construction materials, concerns about hygiene, and
a new rise in wealth among the middle class. Exhibiting elements
of the Neo-Classical Revival and Prairie architectural styles, construction of the sandstone building began in 1906. The mausoleum
opened to the public in 1916. The interior is comprised of marble
and concrete. Furnishings include chandeliers, wool carpeting, and
wrought iron furniture. Stained-glass windows admit natural light.
Two windows feature an upside-down torch with a still-burning
flame, which symbolizes a belief in eternal spiritual life after
death and burial. The mausoleum has space for 383 internments. As
of 2016, it is supported and maintained by a perpetual care fund.
