R. H. White Mausoleum erected in Stone Farm section

October 2, 2016

As the new Stone Farm area was laid out in the 1870’s the plans evolved from a rigid grid to a design of gently curving roads and paths.  The new plan provided for a few dramatic focal points.  The R.H. White mausoleum, designed by architect Willard T. Sears in 1900 was built by a prominent Boston department store owner in one of these special places.
