Our History

Dr. Frank L. Adams lived in the original house from 1897 until 1920. After he sold it to Bessie Wood Gustason in 1920, she converted the building to a mortuary. The Bessie J. Wood Co. sold the business to Grant Miller Mortuaries in 1930. In 1933, Mr. Miller added a beautiful chapel, which is used to this day. Wood and Miller were partners in a mortuary at 2372 East 14th Street for around ten years before Wood moved to a new location downtown in 1908. Grant Miller was County Coroner from 1914 until 1938 and an EBMUD director from its organization in 1923 until 1943. He passed away in January 1945. The Grant Miller Mortuary on East 14th Street remained open until 1978.Dr. Frank L. Adams lived in the original house from 1897 until 1920.
