I looked all over your website in California and couldn't find it listed. I was on the 5 freeway south bound and near burbank. On my left was a huge castle like building with a huge church above it. could you please tell me what this building is?

The "castle" east of the 5 freeway near Burbank (with the church above) this email was referring to is the Mausoleum at the Forrest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale. Final resting place of Clark Gable, Red Skelton, Syd Grauman and many others.

I used to work for a firm that owned this cemetery. Itís actually Forrest Lawn Memorial Park. 1712 S. Glendale Ave. The building is the mausoleum, much more Grecian like than castle like because the memorial park itself is full of that era of classical Grecian art and art from that era, not medieval.

This is the link: http://www.forestlawn.com/About-Forest-Lawn/Glendale-The-Great-Mausoleum.asp, and the cemetery is: http://www.forestlawn.com/About-Forest-Lawn/Locations-and-Directions-Glendale.asp

{{Castlefinder note!}} I'm not sure this really qualifies as a castle.

Also I was reading about a post (http://www.dupontcastle.com/castles/ca_unk26.htm) of a castle in burbank. I believe he is talking about something other than the cemeteries mausoleum. More north on the 5 up by the burbank airport there is a business that looks like a castle. I don't know what company it is that has it. I believe it's around the intersection of Hollywood way, and San fernando road.

Just a quick note, I was trying to figure out what a castle-like building was and found that others had asked about it on your Web site, on this page:


In case anyone else asks, it's the Electrosonic building. They're an AV company located at 3320 N San Fernando Blvd, Burbank, CA 91504.

Their Web site is:


Pretty cool building for an industrial street; I think they even have a museum inside.
