Ertel Funeral Home

-A A +A
1936, Walter H. Simon. 42 N. Market St.
  • (Carol M. Highsmith Archive, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division)

Like many southwestern business buildings, this one blends Spanish Colonial Revival, Mission Revival, and Pueblo Revival styles, combining battered stucco walls and vigas with a bell niche, wrought iron trim, and a red tile roof. John Walter Ertel built this as a funeral parlor. It is well preserved on the exterior, although modified inside to keep up with advances in mortuary science.
