The Glover Mausoleum is a historic site in Demopolis, Alabama. Also known as the Glover Vault, it is best noted for being the start of the Riverside Cemetery. However, what really got it listed on the National Register of Historic Places is its excellent Greek Revival architecture.

The Glover Mausoleum was built around 1841 to 1845 by Mary Anne Glover, the second wife and widow of Allen Glover, a noted local planter in Demopolis. The land was in the family from 1831, which was passed to Glover?s daughter Anne Gaines Glover when Allen died in 1840. When the Glover Mausoleum was finished, the remains of Allen Glover as well as his first wife and a daughter were moved here. Later on, it became the family cemetery, but by 1882, lots were already being sold off to the public, which marked the creation of the Riverside Cemetery.
