Our History

The Northwestern Casket Company was incorporated June 1, 1882 and was primarily a manufacturer and distributor of funeral supplies such as high quality funeral cars, ambulances, burial garments, burial vaults and caskets.

Daily shipments of raw lumber were delivered to the plant where craftsman would create and assemble the shell of the casket as well as customizing the interior fabric. Caskets were ordered by funeral directors via express telegraph or US Postal Service and shipped by train to the funeral provider.

The company occupied the building located at 1707 Jefferson Street NE in Minneapolis from our inception until moving into the current building in New Hope in 2006.
