Neighborhood Funeral Home

The owner of this funeral home was born in the 1920s, and after completing mortuary school in Pennsylvania returned South to open his business. According to county records, this funeral home was constructed in 1955. The family-owned business served the local community for decades. As the sole proprietor, the owner and his family lived in a small apartment on the second floor. Someone had to always be close by in case the phone rang. Before the internet and cell phones, a landline was the only means of communication when a body needed to be picked up.

The funeral home has not had a funeral since 2011. The business likely closed around this time. The owner passed away a few years later, and the property has sat abandoned ever since. Inside, the interior still holds its 1950s charm with the original wallpaper that can be seen throughout the home. One unique feature of this funeral home is its small viewing room in the main chapel. The casket display room sits near the back of the building with a few caskets still on display. In the rear of the building by the garage is the embalming room with its checkered floor. Old embalming chemicals and rusty tools were left behind inside the cabinets.
