Portland’s Sellwood Mausoleum

For the last few years I have made an annual pilgrimage to Portland’s Sellwood Mausoleum, also known as Wilhelm Portland Memorial Funeral Home.  The mausoleum is an eight story structure built on a hill overlooking Oak’s Bottom in Portland Oregon.  Inside you will find a slice of Portland’s History.
