This altar-like crypt, reminiscent of a ruined fragment of a Gothic church, is the resting place of Louise Van Cleve (1872–1920) in Cleveland’s Lake View Cemetery. Little is known about her, but her husband, Charles H. Strong, was an eminent merchant from an old Cleveland family. Years after her death, he remarried and is buried elsewhere.
