Mountain View Mausoleum 100th Anniversary Celebration

Altadena Heritage staged a joyful celebration to honor the centenary anniversary of Mountain View Mausoleum. The theme was “1923.” The halls echoed with 1920s jazz, people danced the dances of the time, drank Prohibition era cocktails, and partook of delicious food, wine and barrel beer. Spirits of the past, now resting in the Mausoleum or Cemetery, were brought to life by re-enactors. Over 60 paintings by local artists depicting “Mountain Views” were mounted in the gallery for the day, and cash prizes were awarded to local students who participated in an Altadena Heritage sponsored art contest. Nearly 400 people joined in the once-in-a-lifetime festivities. It was great!
