Anderson, a native of Racine, Wisconsin, took over the Rugby funeral business in 1921. Operating first out of several downtown commercial buildings, in 1936 he constructed this picturesque funeral home and residence built of fieldstone. It has curved eaves and a turreted corner entrance tower. A low-perimeter stone wall encloses a formal front garden. In 1948 Anderson’s son renovated the building and added an apartment building to the south.
