Linwood Mausoleum

The Linwood Mausoleum was constructed in 1920 by the Southwestern Mausoleum Company of Little Rock for a group of local private citizens of prominence and affluence. Ownership was later conveyed to the city, and it is the only mausoleum in Arkansas owned by a city. Its heavy stone masonry construction and Classical Revival style are rare in northeast Arkansas. It is an outstanding and unaltered example of the Classical Revival style. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In addition to prominent and respected residents, Frank "Jelly" Nash, infamous 1930s gangster, is interred here. His underworld connections, big-time racketeering, string of successful bank robberies, murder charges, and skillful prison escapes placed him at the top of the FBI's Most Wanted List.
