Our handicap accessible, Williamsburg style facility features a Chapel that seats 235 and large, tastefully decorated visitation rooms which can be divided for smaller gatherings or services.

From the traditional funeral to a simple gathering of remembrance, with prices to serve every family's needs, McFarland’s strives to provide meaningful services celebrating life. We encourage you to browse the many choices and information available.
