Opened in 1931, our location on Cherry Street is among the oldest funeral homes in Macon, GA. Founded by the Hart brothers in 1899, our funeral home’s history began two blocks away on Mulberry Street; however, even with an expansion in 1904, the business outgrew the building and needed more room to serve families. The brand-new Cherry Street building was designed and brought to life by local Macon contractor R.H. Smalling & Sons Construction Co. The stately, two-story structure continues to serve as a distinguished setting for services and features classic colonial architecture.
Our funeral home in Macon also has a clear view of the nearby beautiful St. Joseph Catholic Church with its iconic spires and stained-glass windows. The interior of our Macon funeral home is just as eye-catching as the exterior, featuring high ceilings and elegant furnishings. Our spacious chapel can accommodate all manner of services comfortably. What’s more, our Cherry Street location is one of the only funeral homes in Macon, GA with an on-site crematory, allowing our families who choose cremation to rest assured that their loved one never leaves our expert care. Our state-of-the-art cremation center is unlike any other in the nation, combining modern technology with a centuries-old tradition.
Our standards for service are higher than any funeral home in Macon, a dedication that has earned us the title of Best Funeral Home for eight consecutive years. We treat every family with equal respect and compassion, guiding them through a difficult process with a gentle hand. We are so grateful to be a part of our unique community and take every chance we can to support it. As well as participating in organizations such as the Rotary Club, our team at Hart’s Mortuary hosts special events such as our Veterans and First Responders Appreciation Breakfast as well as our Grilling Events. Please contact us today for more information about our funeral home in Macon, GA or for a tour.
