The Tower of Memories is a mausoleum located at Crown Hill Cemetery in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. The seven story building is 158 feet (48.16 m) tall; its entrance is at 29th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard.

The building was designed with Gothic detailing by Charles A. Smith in 1926. After his firm failed in 1928, architects William and Arthur Fisher were commissioned to continue the construction. World War II caused further delays to the building's construction. In 1948, architect John Monroe was hired to complete the building.

It was entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. The Tower of Memories is a seven story modernistic building.
