History of McGilley & Hoge Johnson County Memorial Chapel
McGilley and Hoge Johnson County Memorial Chapel has proudly served the community for many years. What began as a small funeral home in rural Johnson County, Kan., has become a cornerstone business in vibrant Overland Park.
In 1932, brothers Royce and Wilbur Hoge established Hoge Funeral Home, where service became a tradition.
The McGilley family joined the Hoge Funeral Home in 1976, and have continued to provide the same high standards of service that the Overland Park community has come to expect.
We’re honored to be a member of the Dignity Memorial network. Each of our families are assured personal, compassionate care from a locally operated establishment, with the many advantages and value that this trusted network can offer. Our competent, caring staff of professionals continues our original commitment of service to the community.
Located in historic downtown Overland Park, McGilley and Hoge Chapel sits on the Santa Fe Trail, across the street from the Carriage House, an important feature of the Strang Line. Many of our longtime residents recall how McGilley and Hoge Chapel began in a large residence when Santa Fe Drive was a narrow, two-lane, gravel road. Throughout the years, McGilley and Hoge Chapel has been updated to better serve the ever-changing needs of the families we are privileged to serve in this lovely, historic area.
