When St. Augustine was preparing for its 450th birthday, the Craig family was also commemorating a milestone of their own. Craig Funeral Home celebrated 100 years of business in 2015, recalling a rich heritage of providing service and lasting memories for the families of the nation’s oldest city through four generations.
In 1915, Mr. Augustus Hedrick Craig went to work at L.F. Sanchez Funeral Home which was established in 1899. The original funeral home was located at 30 St. George Street, in what is now the historical part of St. Augustine. Above is a #ThenAndNow of #HistoricStAugustine located on 54 St. George Street. Today the second building on the left is St. Augustine Art Glass. This building was once Dodge’s Curiosity Shop and before that, the Don Juan Paredes house, built between 1803-1813. Notice the building further down on the left (with the dormers) is in the original photo as well. The building on the right is gone.
