#177 Funeral Home

1387 Locust St. -- 1939

Originally the site of the home of the pioneer Burpee family, the building at the corner of Locust and Cypress Streets (originally School and China Streets) was constructed around 1939 as a private residence. It was converted to the funeral home and city morgue in 1949 (note the stained glass window), then a dance studio in 1955, and a restaurant in 1978.
