Neoclassical architecture refers to a style of buildings constructed during the revival of Classical Greek and Roman architecture that began around 1750 and flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Neoclassical architecture is characterized by grandeur of scale, simplicity of geometric forms, Greek—especially Doric or Roman detail, dramatic use of columns, and a preference for blank walls.
The neoclassical architectural style was used to symbolize the family's Greek heritage. This proud Greek family is from Beaver County, Pennsylvania. At the time of construction, all the family members that were planning on being interred in the mausoleum were still alive.
The Pappan family took advantage of Rome Monument's Pre-Arranged Cemetery Monument Plan. As opposed to at-need monument planning, which cannot guarantee that the wishes of the deceased are expressed accurately, pre-need planning allowed the Pappan family to pre-design, pre-plan and pre-pay for a truly high quality monument prior to their passing and according to their wishes.
The mausoleum was built using American Gray and blue pearl granite. The main portion of the mausoleum was constructed with American Gray granite. The blue pearl granite door was sculpted with crosses to symbolize the Pappan family's Christian faith.
The two memorial benches in front were made from blue pearl granite. The mausoleum design incorporates classical architecture by using fluted turned ionic columns as one element. The family name carved above the entrance features polished hand tooled raised letters. The mausoleum rests on a triple base course of granite.
The roof stone is accented with decorative molding. Rome Monument took about one month, on-site in the cemetery, to complete the construction. The complete mausoleum required 4 large truckloads of granite. Many of the components were prefabricated in the production facility before being assembled on-site.
