In 1941, John A. Knox established the House of Knox, which was located in the 300 block of Halifax Street; after purchasing E. D. Mason Funeral Home.
Later, Mr. Knox moved his business to 564 Halifax Street after building a new facility. The House of Knox remained under the direction of Mr. Knox until September of 1982, then he took full retirement. The business was sold to Donati R. High, Sr., in the same year. At that time Mr. High changed the name to Knox Funeral Service.
In September, 1996, the High family moved into a completely new facility at 568 Halifax Street and the name was changed to Knox-High Mortuary, Inc.
Knox-High Mortuary, Inc. continues to strive for excellence in our services to families with a dedicated staff under the leadership of The High Family.
