Angwin Service Funeral Company
The Echols and Angwin Funeral Home was founded in 1898 by John Angwin and Dennis Echols at 17th Street and Avenue F in Ensley. The partners created what has been called the first "funeral parlor" in the United States when they constructed a heavily-draped chamber alongside their undertakers' shop expressly for the visitations.
