Slumber Evermore

This ornate Gothic monument is dedicated to W.W. Goulding (1809-1859) in Brookside Cemetery, at Watertown Center Loop and Brookside Drive, Watertown, Jefferson County, New York. I believe it was designed by L.L. Lewis and made from Potsdam Sandstone, a uniquely-reddish colored sandstone quarried in Upstate New York. The word “Mizpah” appears beneath his epitaph, signifying an emotional bond between two people separated by death.
