Beecher Mausoleum

So you saw the Beecher Mausoleum building that we are working on in an earlier post. Here is what we have to work with regarding the Beecher Mausoleum stained glass windows. Currently all the existing stained glass windows have been broken and/or shot out through the years and this is all that is left of more than about 20 windows. Our first step is to do rubbings and take a whole boat load of notes of what we have and then we will be doing a lot of research to get the project moving.  Suevel Studios is working with a nonprofit, Beecher Mausoleum, to remake and restore the old stained glass windows; so, the process is going to take a while, but all for a good cause.  This mausoleum holds one of President Abraham Lincoln’s body guards.
