Funeral home celebrates 150 years

An article in The Elkhart Truth around 1990 stated that a former Walley-Mills-Zimmerman Funeral Home location must be moved or demolished. The funeral home operated out of the downtown building from 1919 to 1964.

ELKHART — Before Elkhart even had its own municipal government, it had a funeral home that is still around.

Walley-Mills-Zimmerman Funeral Home opened its doors in 1869, six years before Henry C. Wright became the first mayor of Elkhart, and 20 years before The Elkhart Truth was established.
