There is a glass case that displays an antique horse-drawn hearse loaded with a Confederate coffin. There are also undertaker tools and children's coffins in the display case.

There is an informational plaque that reads: "J E Foust & Son Funeral Directors John E. Foust (1861-1926) Moved to Grapevine in 1880 and started a general merchandise store which stocked coffins. He gradually added other services and with the help of his wife Daisy (Hutt) (1876-1963) Established a funeral company, a civic leader, Foust also assisted in the development of other area businesses.

Foust, II (1898-1978), Joined the firm in 1923, following his fathers death he managed the funeral home and mercantile store until the 1960s, for over 100 years Faust family members have served in the business and civic activities of Grapevine."
