Lead Me to Your Door

Mausoleum for the Brown family in Oakwood Cemetery, 940 Comstock Avenue, next to Syracuse University, in Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York. Alexander Timothy Brown (1854-1929) was an inventor and president of the H. H. Franklin Automobile Company. He was married to Mary Lillian Seamans Brown (1863-1932). Their youngest son, Charles S. Brown (1885-1953), was also an inventor and dog breeder. Their art deco mausoleum is nothing if not imposing.

 

Oakwood Cemetery was designed by landscape architect Howard Daniels and opened in 1859. It is a secular Victorian “rural” or “garden” style cemetery where over 60,000 people are interred in 160 wooded acres.
