McMillin Mausoleum - San Juan Island, WA



John S. McMillin Memorial Mausoleum now known as Afterglow Vista is located on the northern tip of San Juan Island in Washington State. The open-air rotunda was designed by John S. McMillin and contains the remains of most of the McMillin family. The mausoleum features a large limestone table surrounded by six stone chairs representing the members of the McMillin family. Each chair actually containing the ashes of the respective family member. The stone table represents the dinner table that the McMillin family would gather around. An empty space at the table represents the McMillin son who turned away from Methodism. The table is circumscribed by six Roman columns and a single broken column representing the unfinished nature of man’s life. Originally, the mausoleum was to be covered by a large brass dome, however, that feature was never completed - leaving the table and chairs open to the elements.
