Mt. Olivet Cemetery
Backstory and Context
In 1901 the Mt. Olivet Cemetery constructed a small chapel. It was in the popular style of Romanesque Revival, which often emphasizes arches in door ways and windows and also corner buttresses. The Little Chapel, as it is often called, fell into neglect over the years until 1969 when a private donation was submitted in honor of the memory of the early settlers in Janesville. Because of this donation, the cemetery was able to fix and update the Little Chapel so it can continue to be used today.
