Regarding Warren Family Mortuary Chapel: 1861. The Warren Family Mortuary Chapel is a small Chapel sited on a knoll in the center of the Oakwood cemetery. Built in 1860, it is a stone church in the English country Gothic style designed by noted architect Henry Dudley of New York. The building has a nave and cross transept plan, lancet windows, and a recessed pointed-arch entrance with a small rosette window above. In 1883 a tower of compatible material and design was added on the northeast side. On the interior, above the altar, there is a triple stained-glass window designed by artist/professor Robert Weir of West Point. There are 95 family burials under marble gravestones in the floor. Former member of the United States House of Representatives Joseph Mabbett Warren (1813–1896) is interred in the chapel.
