Funeral Home in a Civic Auditorium

The Hawker Funeral Home is inside Blackfoot's former city Mormon Tabernacle/Civic Auditorium.

[L. Hammond, 11/24/2013]

The auditorium was built in 1921. It was empty by the time the funeral home bought it in 2002 -- for its parking lot -- but the town loved the old building so much that the funeral home decided to move into it.
