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. The Memorial Presbyterian Church was built by industrialist Henry Flagler for his daughter, Jennie Louise, who died after giving birth in 1889. The Manse (parsonage) was also built at that time.
