Almost Gone: Kurtz Furniture

Before going into the funeral business full time, the Kurtz family of Jarrettsville, Maryland made furniture. Their old shop still stands today, across the street from the Kurtz Funeral Home. I noticed a for-sale sign there the other day, so if you want a last look at the thing, now would be a good time to go. It ain't Monticello, but it is a good example of an old, largish, commercial building.
