Commins, who visited Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusets, and was inspired to create the same park-like setting for a cemetery in Akron. The cemetery features a wide variety of architectural styles, as well as stately mausoleums and symbolic statues honoring prominent citizens of Akron, including politicians, famous, industrialists, and Akron socialites.
