This past weekend I did a revisit to one of my favourite abandoned places, the old creepy abandoned mausoleum just outside of Port Dover Ontario. I call this place my favourite because it was one of the first abandoned places I explored many, many years ago. This old old abandoned mausoleum is what sparked my curiosity and led to this wonderful hobby of exploring and documenting the many abandoned places in Ontario. The story goes that this place was built in 1923 and many of the local residents found the cost of burial here was beyond their means and no spaces were ever sold. Eventually the place fell into disrepair and was abandoned. It is currently is being used for storage for the cemetery that is located in behind. Extreme caution must be used if exploring this old abandoned mausoleum, the large block façade is loose and many have fallen to the ground.
The location of this old abandoned mausoleum can be found on our Abandoned Places in Ontario Map.
