THE MAUSOLEUM

In Asia Minor lies the ancient city of Halicarnassus, site of the tomb of Mausolus, King of Caria.

From this ancient tomb, built in honor of Mausolus comes the word Mausoleum, used today to describe a building with crypts used to entomb above ground.

Some of the finest mauseolums of modern times are found at Roosevelt. By foresight and proper planning they are so dispersed and landscaped engineered that each becomes a focal point of beauty.

This is another reason why Roosevelt is know as:

"America's Finest Jewish Burial Estates"
