History

Millspaugh Camerato Funeral Home has been serving Catskill area families for almost 90 years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.

The funeral home in the Colonial Gothic Cottage style of architecture so popular in 1857 when it was built by J.P. Foote's crew of eight men over a period of two years, overlooks the Village of Catskill and the Catskill Creek (a scene often depicted by the Hudson River School of Painters begun by Thomas Cole who resided in Catskill). The cruciform structure with the ground level and cellar three-fourths smaller than the second; the steep Gothic Revival roof; French windows; Dutch colonial porches, dormers and gazebo have all been restored, with beautifully landscaped grounds and spacious parking areas.

The Overlook Chapel, built in 1976, serves as the merchandise selection room and third chapel when required. In the early 1990's our "Remembrance Chapel", was designed to continue the Colonial Gothic architecture. It includes contemporary styles such as skylights, cathedral ceiling and "pickled" woodwork. This chapel was created to provide a spacious "open-air" setting. Our funeral home now has the ability to accommodate seating 250 people and families may select the chapel best suited to their taste and needs.‚Äč
