Tucked into a bluff, high above the Mississippi valley in Monroe county, Illinois Miles Mausoleum is full of mystique, extravagance and ultimately, tragedy. Perched on Eagle Cliff, the gleaning white marble building can be seen for miles from the American Bottoms below, which adds to its mystery and cements its place in local legend. It was built by a man seeking fortune and a place in history, like so many who come to the Riverlands. It’s quite a beautiful place with amazing views and of course– it’s said to be extremely haunted. It’s not surprising, the cemetery has seen over a 100 years of destructive vandalism and even an alleged attempt to raise Mr. Miles from the dead by cultists. We hope you enjoy this local legend! Thanks for listening!
