There’s a story behind every door

Doors of Woodlawn Cemetery


Stories behind the doors of Woodlawn

Stories play an important role in our lives. Over the course of time storytellers like Mark Twain were able to captive his readers by painting vivid images and events occurring within one of his stories. The best stories are ones told over and over again. Hence the importance of cemeteries as a historic place where families can honor, reflect and share memorable stories of a family member.

The Doors of Woodlawn is sharing stories of the families who had constructed mausoleums within the cemetery grounds of Woodlawn.
