The chapel in the cemetery

At first glance it seemed there was a little chapel in the middle of Rock Creek Cemetery. A beautiful Gothic stone building alongside many of the mausoleums of the rich and famous. And sure enough, walking up to it, I saw it was also a mausoleum with a number of vaults as seen from the glass doors that were locked.

The sign outside said Hibbs. Not much could be found aside William Hibbs was a banker born in Maryland in 1911 and living in Washington by the 1920 census before later residing in McLean, Va. when dying in 1969. He worked for American Security and Trust.

Still, it’s the coolest building in a very cool cemetery.
