The mausoleum was designed by Ellis F. Lawrence, who was the first Dean of the University of Oregon’s School of Architecture and Allied Arts.

Hope Abbey is an outstanding example of the rare Egyptian Revival style with its massive entrance archway, papyrus bundles in relief, and lotus blossom urns on either side of the massive copper doors. Dedicated in 1914, the Masons included a time capsule to be opened in a thousand years, in 2914!

After many years of deterioration and inactivity, Hope Abbey is once again an operating mausoleum. Painstaking restoration is in progress. The clerestory windows have been unbricked and are being replaced with replicas of the original golden and leaded glass. An overhaul of the front porch is planned this summer, which will provide wheelchair access.
