In 1895, Christian M. Musselman founded the C. M. Musselman Funeral Home at its present location in Lemoyne, to offer full services to West Shore and Harrisburg residents. Back then it was quite common to couple furniture stores with funeral parlors. So following this tradition of combined endeavors, Christian and his wife Marcella chose Hummel Avenue as their location.
Landis joined his parents to make the second generation to enter the field and the firm became known as C.M. Musselman & Son Funeral Home.
Landis and Ruth’s sons David L. and Donald C. returned from the war and followed the family tradition. They continued in partnership as
Musselman Funeral Home until David’s death in 1982.
In 1936 the furniture store was discontinued and Musselman’s became strictly a funeral home. In 1943, Landis died in an auto accident and his widow Ruth managed the funeral home until the end of WW II.
Donald’s two sons, Brian C. and Dane C. joined their father bringing Musselman Funeral Home, Inc. into its fourth generation. Donald died in 1997 and Brian purchased his brother’s interest in the firm the same year.
Brian C. Musselman and his wife Barb Musselman continue to operate the family firm with the same progressive spirit of previous generations.
