Family Owned And Operated in the historic district in Gallatin, Tennessee, on 202 East Main Street, across from First Baptist Church and next door to The Gallatin Church of Christ. Some will remember John R. Harris and his son-in-law, Royce Donoho and wife, Fannie, and Newby's operating this funeral home. This building is over 100 years old and has been operated as a funeral home since 1912, with the exception of five years.
Phillip and Shirley Anderson purchased the property in April of 2013 and spent the next five months completely restoring the building to it's original beauty, decorated with antiques that give it a vintage home atmosphere, with the addition of additional parking on the side of the building extending all the way over to College Street with five entrances to the funeral home that people can come in for convenience. The lounge completely updated, large casket display room, beautiful state rooms completely equipped, and offices, refinished some of the original hardwood floors on the first floor and upstairs and have a very large chapel with digital audio and video, building completely painted in vintage colors, decorated by Shirley Anderson and her personal artwork displayed throughout.
The Anderson's have been in the funeral business for 40 years and have held a tradition for fair competitive pricing, pride, quality service, respect, dignity, and understanding; That is what we have always stood for and our family plan to always be here for you. It's not everyday that you can find employees dedicated to their profession. We are blessed to have Damon Hobbs, Funeral Director/Embalmer, who worked with us when we had Anderson & Anderson Funeral Home in Gallatin. Damon, his wife, Meridith and their two girls have remained residents of Gallatin going on 17 years now. His father was in the funeral business. He knows people in Gallatin having served on several boards and very active in the Gallatin Rotary Club. It is good to have some one locally you can count on in some of your hardest times. We try to take everything off you during this time and bring together services that you will be proud of an help you to have some degree of closure.
