Original Funeral Home Exterior Photo, Circa 1952
The property at 153 Spruce St. was purchased in 1951 by Dewey and Mary Hastings, beginning their endeavor in funeral service.
The original facility consisted of two viewing rooms, and the upstairs served as the Hastings family residence.
Present Day Exterior of Hastings Funeral Home
This photo shows that over the years, the building and property have undergone several renovations and additions. The building now includes three visitation rooms, two family lounges, handicap accessible entrances and restrooms, ample off street parking, one of the largest arrangement offices in the area where our families make their selections to honor loved ones, and office space.
Main Visitation Room
Our largest visitation room is beautifully appointed and can seat approximately 100 guests. All of our visitation rooms are equipped with a state of the art sound system.
Second Visitation Area
Commonly referred to as Chapel B, this is one of the two original visitation areas in the funeral home. Also tastefully appointed, this room features a more intimate feeling for smaller visitations and private services. Each of our visitation rooms is equipped with a state of the art sound system.
Alternate Visitation Room / Multi-Media Area
Also one of the two original visitation rooms of the funeral home, this area is now more commonly used as a multi-media area. Our staff will tastefully create a memorial DVD with pictures provided by our clients to honor their loved ones lives. This DVD is played during visitation hours on large flat screen televisions in our chapel and then returned to the family as a memento.
Our arrangement office is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the area.
Since undergoing a major renovation in 2011, we have since expanded our memorial selections to our clients in more casual, comfortable, modern-day setting.
Including a wide variety of caskets, outer burial containers, stationery items and personalized selections, our clients have responded very positively this new approach.
Cremation Selection Area
As a full service cremation provider for nearly three decades, our cremation selections area also went an extensive renovation to reflect the changing times of funeral service.
Our cremation area contains a vast selection of urns, caskets, alternative containers, keepsake pendants and jewelry items to honor the memory of your loved ones.
Our two lounge areas in the upstairs of the funeral home provide a means for our families and their guests to take a break for refreshments or a snack during visitation periods. These areas have cozy cafe tables, a refrigerator and microwave for your convenience.
We provide coffee, and our guests are welcome to bring in any other refreshments or food that they wish.
