Plein Air– Spring Grove

Gothic Chapel
Plein Air, 12" x 16", Oil on Canvas

This Gothic chapel is the Dexter family mausoleum in Spring Grove Cemetery. A wealthy "whiskey baron" of English decent, Edmund Dexter had this chapel built in 1869 overlooking the main pond. The upstairs portion is a perfectly proportioned Gothic chapel for the family's use for services. Below the front stair is a arched entrance to the crypt below where family members are interred.
