Myers Mortuary was established in 1947 by P.L. and Margaret Myers. The original funeral home was located on South East Street which was remodeled from an existing doctor's office.
P.L. and Margaret Myers felt that they could serve the community better with a new facility. In 1961 they were one of the first businesses to build on State Road 39. The architect, Moncil Swope, was a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. His Myers Mortuary structure was featured in many magazines for its unique lines and classic Frank Lloyd Wright style. The funeral home is located on three and a half acres of land. The peaceful, calming setting of the building was important to the philosophy they had for service.
In 1974 Sigmon W. Myers became a partner in the funeral home with his parents. Sigmon and his wife, Jane (Messenger), later purchased his parents interest in the funeral home. As the business continued to grow additional space was needed and an office and planning center was added in the early 1990’s.
Matt and Sandy Hunt
joined Myers Mortuary in the summer of 2008 and became partners in the funeral
home later that year. In 2014
construction of an on-site-crematory (Boone County Crematory) was completed
giving Lebanon and the surrounding communities the first and only crematory in
Boone County. The former Russell &
Hitch Funeral Home property in Thorntown was purchased in late 2014 and
reopened in January of 2015 as Myers & Hunt Mortuary of Thorntown.
