The current Chapel of the Hills has its roots in Auburn Undertakers, which was established in 1901 in what is now the Native Sons of the Golden West building in historic Old Town Ashburn. In its early years, Auburn Undertakers employed Colin Hislop as an embalmer. Mr. Hislop was elected Coroner of Placer County in 1915 and served 3 terms.

Mr. Hislop later opened and owned the current Chapel of the Hills facility, which was built in 1935. Over the next several years, ownership of Chapel of the Hills transferred from Mr. Hislop to Mr. Doris Hite to Mr. Harry Sands in 1955. Mr. Sands managed the funeral home until 1998. Today, we are a member of the Dignity Memorial® network.
