History

Hyatt M. Patterson always knew his life’s work must be directed to helping others. Acting on this desire, he began his apprenticeship in 1872 in Cleveland and worked there for 9 years. In 1881, while on his honeymoon, he traveled with his English-born bride to Atlanta for the Cotton States Exposition. After seeing the town, he told his bride of one year that they would live in Atlanta. Two days later, he started work with George Boaz at the Markham House, a landmark hotel in the city. The following year he purchased the Markham House and founded Patterson’s Funeral Home in 1882.

Chapel at H.M. Patterson & Son-Oglethorpe Hill ChapelThe business that he founded would become a cornerstone of modern funeral service. Notably, he was the first person in the southeastern United States to build a funeral home from the ground up. The H.M. Patterson – Spring Hill location is the longest continuously operating funeral home in the southeast. Hyatt was also responsible for many other innovations in funeral service and would become regarded as one of Georgia’s outstanding citizens. Before his death, he earned the affection of thousands. He was generous to everyone throughout the community. As a result of his vision, the name H.M. Patterson & Son has been a household word in Atlanta ever since.

H.M. Patterson & Son-Oglethorpe Hill Chapel is a proud member of the Dignity Memorial® network and continues to embrace the values that Hyatt held so dear. Today, we offer resources and sophisticated innovations that continue to distinguish H.M. Patterson & Son as the premier funeral provider.

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"3 different people had recommended H M Patterson Oglethorpe Hill, so I knew right away that my search to find someplace to handle the final arrangements was over. I had very little time to arrange for them to be named as my mother was in hospice and luckily the nurse at hospice explained that I needed to let them know they were engaged so that when mom's time came, they were ready to take her for the final arrangements. Very professional and caring team."
