How We Got Where We Are!

In 1965the Graziano's were informed that they would have to move out of their Main St.Pittston location due to a city redevelopment project. This is when a search began for the ideal location for the new home as well as a new location for the funeral home.

There were three properties that interested Joseph C. and his wife Mary. First was the piece of land that was situated on Winter St. in Pittston City (Behind the RedMill). This location is now owned by the Pittston City Housing Authority. The second location was a home along Susquehanna Ave., West Pittston. Both of these locations had a source of water next to them, one being a creek and the other a river. Third was a parcel of land owned by the Pennsylvania Coal Co. located on what came to be known as the Pittston By-pass.

Charles,one of the three original brothers to start the business in 1900 always spoke of how beautiful a view of the water is until it is in your living room as a result of a flood. This notion resonated with his son Joseph C. and for this reason neither of the first two properties listed above were an option. Joseph C. and Mary went on to purchase the parcel of land owned by the Pennsylvania Coal Co. for $6,600 in 1966.

Note: 11/12/2015 Mary still tells the story to her grandson Joseph, saying - If we had the money we should have bought half of the by-pass at that time.)

When our current location was originally built in 1966, many people told the late Joseph C.Graziano that moving out of downtown Pittston would cause him to lose business. "It was too far for people to travel!. You have to remember back then, the by-pass was like the county, there was one car per family (If That!) and main St. Pittston was a two way road lined with thriving businesses and dress factories. Long story short Joseph C. took a chance!

Two generations & three major renovations later the funeral home remains on this stretch of highway that has become one of the main roads in the Greater Pittston Area. With parking for over 100 cars, handicap accessibility from all entrances and just one mile from both Interstate 81 and I 476 (aka. PA turnpike/ Northeast Extension) Joseph's vision proved to be truly progressive.
