Loveland, Ohio – This LOVELAND MAGAZINE TV video is Mayor Linda Cox recently honoring the Tufts Schildmeyer Family Funeral Homes and Cremation Centers during their celebration of 175 years in business.

One of the oldest family owned funeral homes in the nation. The legacy started in 1840 in Maineville by Seth G. Tufts, who did a bit of everything under the shingle of S. G. Tufts Undertaking and Carriage Shop and continues with locations in Loveland, Blanchester and Goshen Twp.

At the turn of the century, Oscar B. Tufts, Seth’s son, moved the undertaking business to Loveland working out of a livery stable. In 1920, Lawrence S. Tufts, Oscar’s Son, purchased the property on Riverside Drive, which is currently the main location.

For many years, Lawrence Tufts, his nephew, John O. Tufts and his son-in-law Robert P. Schildmeyer operated the funeral home.

Robert and Marilyn Schildmeyer, along with their sons, Lawrence T. and Terry S. Schildmeyer and grandson Lawrence Schildmeyer Jr. represents the fourth, fifth and sixth generations to continue the legacy.
