Erected by: Hillsboro Mausoleum Company A. D. 1913
Perhaps no enterprise that the Hillsboro citizens ever embarked in ever was accomplished with the universal satisfaction to those interested in the building of the Hillsboro Mausoleum in 1913. The proposition was made by Dudley Grant Hays and George Hoffman of Chicago. After due deliberation the citizens of Hillsboro raised the necessary money, to build, equip and endow, a 320 crypt Mausoleum. The plans were worked out for the most substantial, artistic and enduring one that was possible to make, the plans were all carried out to the letter, and the Mausoleum is a credit to the Oak Grove Cemetery to which it is annexed, and the pride of those who have elected to provide a resting place for their bodies after life’s activities have been accomplished.
