Horse-Drawn Hearse in a Gazebo

The Dove-Sharp & Rudicel Funeral Home in North Vernon has a 1914 horse-drawn hearse on display in a glass-enclosed gazebo. The hearse had originally been used by the Eldo Dodd funeral home in nearby Paris Crossing. Dove-Sharp acquired the hearse and restored it before placing in on display. It is still available for use by Dove-Sharp's customers.
