Tombstone Tuesday ~ Sisters of Mercy, Windham, New Hampshire

This mausoleum was photographed in Windham, New Hampshire, on the grounds of the Sisters of Mercy convent and Searles Castle, at 37 Searles Road.   The mausoleum can be found by following the signs to the castle.  There are niches for the sisters on both sides of this little building.  This used to be the grounds of a college for young women, and is now a nursing home and the castle is rented for functions.



This niche is on the end of the mausoleum
