Fall Membership Meeting @ George Funeral Home

Our Fall membership meeting will be held at George Funeral Home. David Tavernier will present about the Winter Colony Home “Deodara,” the cottage name of George Funeral home. A reception will follow.

F. S. Taylor of Saranac Lake, NY, commissioned Hoppin and Koen, architects, to design a Winter Colony home to be known as Deodara (named for the stately cedars that graced the front lawn). Frederick Snow, a NY attorney, owned the home from 1919-1946. During WWII, the family allowed the United States military to use the home as a USO site. The George Funeral Home, Aiken’s only funeral home for many generations, occupies the building today.
