W. J. Young Tomb, Springdale Cemetery

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


W. J. Young Tomb, Springdale Cemetery; 1896.The design of the tomb utilizes the Romanesque Style and makes a simple but powerful architectural statement. As W. J. Young's mansion has been torn down for a super market site, the tomb is a single architectural remembrance of one of Clinton's historic "lumber barons". The tomb is constructed of massive, rough-hewn gray granite stone. Short columns of polished granite flank the portal. The tomb is sited atop a grassy knoll and is composed on axis with several drives. These drives divert and encircle the parcel of land on which the tomb is centered.
