Barbara Muller, vice president of the Heritage Library Foundation, stands in front of the Baynard Mausoleum on Thursday. The stone roof slabs of the mausoleum at the Zion Chapel of Ease cemetery at the corner of William Hilton Parkway and Mathews Drive are cracked and near collapse. The foundation plans temporary repairs to stabilize the roof later this month and is hoping to raise $120,000 for a permanent fix to preserve the oldest intact structure on Hilton Head Island.
