About Colorado's Tower of Memories Mausoleum

The Tower of Memories was designed back in 1926 by Charles Smith but was delayed by numerous factors leaving it to eventually be finished just following World War II.

The mausoleum is 158 feet tall and is really something to behold. However, despite its jaw-dropping outward appearance, it is even more remarkable inside.

Inside the Tower of Memories you will find countless graves right in the stone walls. Some of these final resting places are in rooms specific to families, some are in urns on display, and some are decorated with pictures, flowers, and other items.

There is also a chapel inside of the mausoleum with more final resting places, countless masonic symbols throughout, as well as other symbols you may not recognize right off the bat.
