The original building, seen here, was first built as a boarding house. It remained in operation until 1905 when it was converted into a funeral home by Bromley Sprague and named Bromley & Sons Funeral Home.
In 1956 it was taken over by Charlie & Dubby Zaumetzer and renamed Zaumetzer-Sprague Funeral Home. Charlie & Dubby owned the firm for 49 years and during that time they built an amazing reputation. On the back of the original building was a room that Charlie liked to spend time. It was there that guests and families would go to take a break from the funeral services if needed. Dubby would make her world-famous brownies, and kids from all over would go to get them from her on Halloween.
