Make sure to visit when it is open (before 4). The Tiffany stained glass window and glass mosaics are just stunning. Docent had so much information and had maps for other cemetery sites. Not far from J. Edgar and Hasserot Angel.

This chapel and the history of it are amazing. The Tiffany window is incredible, as is all the mosaic work in it. The docent gives you lots of information. Weddings can be held here. Love the history of the whole park and buildings.
