The VAN GILDER FAMILY has owned and operated The VAN GILDER FUNERAL HOME beginning in 1945. Our family has served this community for two generations.
Our historical home was built in 1896 and has been recognized as an historic landmark structure by the Marshall County Historical Society.
As you approach our Queen Anne style home, you are welcomed by a large, inviting front porch. Inside you will find rooms adorned with the original woodwork, made from quartered sawed oak and butternut. The fireplaces are surrounded with hand carved mantels. The windows are plate glass, several of which are curved. The sun sparkles through three original, leaded, stained glass windows.
We are now offering the second floor, of our home, for families to use. This adds a complete kitchen, more restrooms, a playroom, dining room, living room, sitting room, breakfast room, and more office space. We invite you to tour our historic home and see for yourself, the "home like feeling", so many of our families have come to appreciate. It is very important to us that you feel at home, in our home.
Please feel free to call us 574-936-2534 any time of the day, any day of the week, for immediate assistance. Or, visit our facility in person at your convenience. We also provide a wealth of information here on our web site so you can learn more from the privacy of your own home.
