Mount Auburn Cemetery

Bigelow Chapel and New Crematory

Cambridge, MA



A revitalization of the 1845 Bigelow Chapel and a modern, state-of-the-art crematory addition enhanced Mount Auburn’s historic entry precinct. The glass addition allows mourners to find comfort in Mount Auburn’s inspirational landscape, looking out over the landscape upon arrival, before finding a more contemplative garden in the internal viewing room where the commitment ceremonies occur.
