      Sorry Matt, but I don't have much info.  I was not able to stop and get out of the car.  It looked like limestone, very light in color.  It does have a door, and is built into a hill.  It is quite ornate but not readable when going down the highway, and only a few feet from the side of the road.  Thanks!

      I've never seen it - but I've never explored the area west of
      St. Charles.  Is it a typical mausoleum - granite or limestone, with
      a door, holding about six crypts - as found in most cemeteries?
      Or is this some other design?

      Do you have a photo that you could upload?
