Death House

Death House

Several marble gravestones and the "Death House" in the background at Mount Pleasant Catholic Cemetery in Bangor, Maine. Note: In most New England cemeteries, the Receiving House or Death House as it is called in Bangor, Maine, is the place where the deceased were kept until spring when the ground thawed enough to enable proper burying of the deceased.
