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.
