Family Business

The funeral profession, like many American industries, has a long history of personal service provided by families with deep roots in the local community. Some of the oldest, continuously operated businesses in the country are family-owned funeral homes. Currently, over 85% of funeral businesses are privately-owned and family-operated. The owners of this family-owned funeral home moved to a newer facility, leaving this property abandoned. Old caskets, tombstones, and embalming chemicals were just some of the items left behind.
