The mausoleum was built by local businessman Fritz Arthur Jusélius (1855–1930) for his daughter Sigrid (1887–1898) to be her last place of rest. Sigrid died of tuberculosis at the age of eleven. Her sarcophagus is placed in the basement of the mausoleum. It can be seen from the upper floor. The sarcophagus is made of white Italian marble and designed by architect Jarl Eklund.
Fritz Arthur Jusélius himself is also buried in the mausoleum on its side wing. His two wives have their resting places outside the mausoleum. The Sigrid Juselius Foundation was established in 1930 to promote medical research in Finland.
Juselius Mausoleum was built in 1901–1903. It was planned by Josef Stenbäck in the Gothic Revival style. The famous Finnish artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela painted the interior, including frescoes "Kevät" (Spring), "Rakennus" (Construction), "Tuonelan joella" (By the River of Tuonela), "Hävitys" (Destruction), "Talvi" (Winter) and "Syksy" (Fall). Original frescoes were destroyed by fire in 1931. They were repainted by Gallen-Kallela's son Jorma Gallen-Kallela in 1933–1939 and the mausoleum was opened again in 1941. Decorations include Masonic symbolism since Akseli Gallen-Kallela and F.A. Jusélius both were dedicated Freemasons.
