Long Description:
The Walden-Myer Mausoleum contains the families of Ebenezer Walden and Albert Myer. It is located in section X of Forest Lawn Cemetery, in the northwest corner of the grounds. The design of the giant mausoleum is of Neo-Romanesque design. It supports a large globe which symbolizes God's sovereignty over heaven and earth.

Ebenezer Walden (1777-1857) was the first lawyer in Buffalo, mayor of Buffalo, a judge, and a real estate developer.

Albert Myer (1829-1880) was Walden's son-in-law. Prognosticating the weather was a novel thing in the middle 1800s, but Brigadier General Myer did it so successfully that he founded the U.S. Weather Bureau. He also invented the wig-wag signal system and became the first commander of the Army Signal Corp. The National Weather Service office in Buffalo is named in his honor.
