Hope Abbey Mausoleum

The mausoleum was designed by Ellis F. Lawrence, who was the first Dean of the University of Oregon’s School of Architecture and Allied Arts.

Hope Abbey is an outstanding example of the rare Egyptian Revival style, with its massive entrance archway, papyrus bundles in relief, and palm leaf urns on either side of the copper doors. At its dedication in 1914, the Masons included a time capsule to be opened in a thousand years, in 2914!

After many years of deterioration and inactivity, Hope Abbey is once again an operating mausoleum. Thanks to the generosity of donors, the clerestory windows have been unbricked and are being replaced with replicas of the original golden and leaded glass. An overhaul of the front porch now provides wheelchair access. Marble restoration is in progress.

Hope Abbey is open to the public on Memorial Day weekend, and from 1 to 4 pm the last Sunday of each month except December.
