Kapfer and Gehl Build New Funeral Home
Kapfer and Gehl Funeral Home: Sixth Ave. West Bend
Kapfer and Gehl Funeral Home: Sixth Ave. West Bend
 

I n 1941 construction began on a new Kapfer and Gehl Funeral Home at 127 S. Sixth Avenue in West Bend. An open house for the new funeral home was held on May 16 and 17, 1942 and the local newspaper reported that 1800 people attended the event. The paper also noted "The new funeral home is under the management of Frank Gehl, junior member; the funeral home in Barton will continue under the direction of Andrew Kapfer, senior member, the same as in the past. This gives Kapfer and Gehl two modern funeral homes, offering every desirable facility for service to the living in cases of bereavement through death."
The building on Sixth Avenue is now the office of Port Abstract and Title.
