Inscription.

In c.1912 the Wendle Family Mausoleum at this location was constructed by H.M. Wendle, a stone mason, as a final resting place for family. Eventually the structure deteriorated beyond repair. In 2007, with assistance from Herbert and Gale Wendle, the internments therein were placed in this community mausoleum.
