Originally built to house those that had dedicated themselves to Lady Death but had been forgotten by the living, the Hillgrove Mausoleum has always been considered haunted in one way or another. Before the Fall, the land around it was said to be tainted by angry spirits who wished to be remembered and during it no one dare approach any shrine of Lady Death. Even after the Mindless Unfallen were removed and Woodcreek had been resettled the Mausoleum has sat empty.
Following the architectural style of the Oldway, the Hillgrove Mausoleum is comprised of large stone bricks, panels of Blackstone, and various carvings to represent death, skeletal figures, and Hulmetic runes.
Held up by a sturdy pillar, the Introductory's purpose is to give space for preparing the dead before storing them away in the rest of the mausoleum. At the back of the room, three empty sarcophagi sit ready to be filled with corpses.

The Introductory was held together by loose stones and crumbling walls. Two wooden caskets lay about with a note. Guardian Pale was able to subdue a Pyre Hound found within, surprisingly without violence.
Sometime around 7500 of Man to 7800 of Man.
