Beecher Mausoleum

1 Comment

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.

One thought on “Beecher Mausoleum

  1. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate the assistance of Suevel Studios in joining our restoration project. We have been working on restoring the mausoleum for 20 years now and it was just so in the past few years so many good people, business and organizations joined us in helping to preserve an important part of our national heritage. Without the help of people like Eric and Markay Suevel we may never have seen beautiful stained glass but back in the building.
    We can’t wait to see the stained glass replaced.
    Eric & Markay welcome to the growing list of Guardian Angels.
