The Abbey Mausoleum 
Located in Rose Hill Memorial Park, The Abbey Mausoleum is a 72,000-square-foot structure with Art Deco interior details built of marble that was transported to Tulsa from Alabama and Italy. It opened in 1926, about a decade after the cemetery itself opened, and was expanded four times; the most recent addition was in 1967. Many notable Tulsans including Lee Fritas, Kathryn Sue Harwell, Adah Robinson, and William (Bill) Grove Skelly are interred at The Abbey Mausoleum.
