Map & Driving Directions
The original Morgan Funeral Home was established in Caribou in 1898 by G.M. Morgan. Morgan bought the establishment from Charles F. Ross, who owned a furniture and undertaking company located on Sweden Street. Although this building burned in 1903 it was rebuilt the same year. The firm constructed a new brick building in 1927 to house both the furniture and undertaking companies. That building is now the home of the Caribou Theaters.
In later years it was seen that a facility was needed to meet the needs of the growing number of families who needed a facility for visitations and funerals. A new funeral home was built in 1948 by two of G.M. Morgan’s sons, Ralph and Clyde. The Morgan Funeral Home served Washburn, New Sweden, Stockholm, Woodland, Limestone, Caribou, Connor and Perham for more than 74 years until its purchase by Jack and Juanita Lancaster of Lancaster Funeral Home in 1972. Lancaster Funeral Home was established in 1950 at a Pleasant Street location in Caribou, by Jack Lancaster, a Houlton native and licensed funeral director. Lancaster Morgan Funeral Home has been at 11 Clover Street in Caribou since its purchase by Jack from the Morgan family.
Doug Hunter purchased Lancaster Morgan Funeral Home on June 1, 2007 from Juanita and her son, John Lancaster.
