During the last quarter of the eighteenth century, settlers searching for an agricultural lifestyle made their home in Mifflin Township. In these early days, the main mode of transport was via horse. This method of vehicle created a need for a first-class livery service- this is when Mr. E. C. Finney and Mr. J. Will Martin step into regional history.
Their livery occupied a large frame building which was modernly equipped and well-stocked with horses and vehicles. The pair quickly gained local notoriety due to their stellar reputation as a feed and boarding stable.
As was common for the time, the livery service also served as an undertaking establishment. Both Mr. Finney and Mr. Martin were graduates of the Pittsburg College of Embalming and had several years of practical experience in the art of embalming and directing funerals.
The firm was the first undertaking business of the town and expanded in proportion to the growth of the surrounding communities. The founders established a tradition of excellence in service, which we proudly carry on today. Our current owner, Scott Finney, comes from a lineage of established funeral directors and has expanded the business to serve a variety of communities.
