The Lexington Mausoleum
Upon entering the carpeted interior of The Lexington Mausoleum, you'll notice the imported Perlato polished marble crypt facings, illuminated by skylights and chandeliers. Each crypt, whether inside or out, is clean, dry and away from the elements of the earth, and is constructed to endure through time. A chapel is available for private meditation, visitation and memorial services.
In addition, The Lexington Mausoleum contains a columbarium, a repository for urns containing cremated remains. The beauty of bronze and glass have been put to use in constructing these columbarium niches.
The Lexington Mausoleum will accommodate the entombment and memorialization needs of Lexingtonians for generations to come. Crypts may be purchased individually, in pairs or blocks for family arrangements. Enough land has been allocated to allow for future expansion of The Lexington Mausoleum.
Private MausoleumsThroughout The Lexington Cemetery, visitors also will find many private family mausoleums.These facilities are objects of beauty, artistry and architecture, reflecting the craftsmanship of their era. And like The Lexington Mausoleum, they are shrines to honor the individuals entombed within the structure.
Families interested in purchasing a lot to place a private family mausoleum may contact a Cemetery representative.
The Bell MausoleumThe first public above-ground entombment at The Lexington Cemetery, the Bell Mausoleum was dedicated October 23, 1974. Containing 204 crypts, the Bell Mausoleum, was named in honor of the first superintendent of the Cemetery, Charles S. Bell. Appropriately, the bell that originally hung in the tower of the office building was moved to this new structure. In earlier days, the bell tolled when funeral processions entered the gate.
When the availability of crypts in The Bell Mausoleum became limited, The Lexington Cemetery expanded its mausoleum facilities by developing the new Lexington Mausoleum.
