For many, a modest gravestone is all that’s requested for their burial site. Others choose to have their ashes scattered at sea. But for John S. McMillin, neither of those options would do.
Before the successful businessman, mason, and devoted Methodist passed, he had a burial ground built for his family that is rich with symbolism and beautiful in nature. Not only did he want to leave a lasting impression on the world, he wanted to show everyone what was truly important to him — family.
McMillin had a mausoleum erected to house the remains of his family deep in the woods of Washington — to many, it’s known as the Afterglow Vista.
