Built in 1895 by Mr. John Spafford, the characteristic warmth of a Victorian Era home is noted by many families and visitors. Extensive use of cut and crystal glass throughout the house, true quarter sawn oak staircase, fireplaces of cherry, oak, and birdseye maple.
The ambiance of an era past has been mated with a functionality for those we serve today.
Axel A. Sundberg began Sundberg Funeral Parlor at 1508 Broadway, here in Rockford in 1918. In 1924 Axel A. Sundberg & Erling E. Larsen opened Sundberg's Funeral Home at 1511 Broadway. An early advertisement states, "Unlike some other undertaking parlors, the office is in the rear where the ringing of the phone and transacting of business does not interrupt services".
