Historic Niswonger Home Began as a Hall

C. P. Niswonger moved to Central Oregon in 1907, and started Niswonger-Reynolds Funeral Home in 1911. Read the full article published in The Bulletin on August 31, 1990.

Niswonger-Reynolds was sold to a New Orleans company during a time when large national chains had been buying up small, family-run funeral homes throughout the country.

In 2004, Jerome and Dawna Daniel published the announcement of their purchase of Niswonger-Reynolds Funeral Home - once again making Niswonger-Reynolds a family-owned funeral home, which remains a matter of great importance today.
