Ancient Egyptian Style Mausoleum of Marcus Brown
Oakhill Cemetery, Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan

Location:  647 Hall SE, 49507, Oakhill Cemetery, South Side
City Cemetery:  Kent County, Grand Rapids, Michigan USA

Oakhill Cemetery boasts a number of huge and striking mausoleums:  The following excerpt from "The Story of Grand Rapids" by Z.Z. Lydens.  Chapter 33, Page 532.  Kregel Publications, 1966 & 67.

Probably the most expensive of the mausoleums is that of A. B. Watson, a replica of an Egyptian temple.  Major Watson, who died in 1888, was a Civil War veteran, lumberman, and industrialist.  It was said in later years the mausoleum would cost a half million dollars to replace.
