Hollywood - Part three - The End
This is the last of the posting of Hollywood Cemetary. The Mausoleums and a few of the beautiful monuments to various persons laid to rest here.
Mausoleums built into the side of the hill.
It has been said , they are haunted.
There is a few stories floating around as to why and those stories can be found if you do a search on the internet.
Beautiful stained glass in on of the mausoleums.

I was told by a visitor I met in the cemetary this day, that this stone monument was a whisper wall.
I sat on one end and Carolyn sat on the other, my voice did carry to the other side . We could carry on a conversation sitting on opposite ends; speaking barely above a whisper. I can't find anything that says this is what it is really called.
