Columbarium: A room or building with niches for funeral urns to be stored.

Now that you have context, you learn that this is one of San Francisco’s most fringe attractions. The hauntingly beautiful neo-classical building has suffered a lot since it was built in 1897 – neglect, looting and vandalism. It’s only in the last three decades that it has been restored, by the singular efforts of Emmitt Watson.

Its beauty is now apparent. A stained glass dome ceiling caps a light-filled atrium. The balconies are elegant. The rooms on the ground floor are themed after mythological winds, while those on the first floor at themed after constellations. The people interred here are famous, such as Harvey Milk and Chet Helms.
