Old stone building, New Rural Cemetery

Hosted by Photobucket.com

I'm having a mental block about the proper name for this building. If anyone knows, please tell me! It's an old stone building at the cemetery. I believe that it was used to store coffins during the winter until they could be buried in the spring. I don't think that "mausoleum" is the right term. Anyway, there are long stone slab shelves inside that are spaced just far apart enough that it looks like caskets would fit on them. I just discovered this cemetery even though I've been driving by it for years. I have some other shots (of the incredible scrollwork on the windows, and also of the inside of the building) that I'll post in a day or two.
