Description

An abandoned mausoleum outside Port Dover.

The Port Dover Mausoleum was erected and built of concrete in 1927. During the depression the cost of the crypts, $225-$275, were too much and the mausoleum went unused.
There is a well-maintained cemetery in the back which is unseen from the highway.

In 2008 it was the site of the final scenes of a movie filmed by Internext Studios of Toronto, which is operated by Jeff and Matt Campagna. The large columns in front can be seen in clips of the movie "Six Reasons Why".

I've included links about the recent demo and some interior shots. It was only used for storage.

I LOVE this building. Looks so Gothic.

A very nice building, though the cemetery interests me more since it's actually accessible haha. The bushes in front of the mausoleum in the summer make it impossible to really even see the building, so I have to second Sonic in saying it was a disappointment. Love the photos where you can actually see the building though. :P

visited the site the week of April 5th 2011. Was a little disappointed. The way home from this place proved much more fruitful. I am always on the hunt for interesting locations to shoot models.

@vitalfilms
Sic transit gloria mundi is a Latin phrase that means "Thus passes the glory of the world". It has been interpreted as "Worldly things are fleeting." It is possibly an adaptation of a phrase in Thomas à Kempis's 1418 work The Imitation of Christ: "O quam cito transit gloria mundi" ("How quickly the glory of the world passes away").

The phrase was used in the ritual of papal cor
