Lobby at Cook-Walden Chapel of the Hills Funeral HomeThe Cook-Walden legacy of service began in the Greater Austin area in the late 1800s. Samuel E. Rosengren opened a downtown funeral home in the 400 block of Congress Street, serving the needs of the growing state capital until 1920.

Charles B. Cook purchased Rosengren’s business and opened an opulent 3-story building located between the capitol and governor’s mansion. The business quickly became one of the largest and most prestigious providers of funeral and ambulance services in Austin. For more than 50 years Cook continued the tradition of providing the finest in care and service in Austin.

Charles Walden purchased Cook Funeral Home in 1971, bringing 30 years of dedication and service to the business. Walden soon moved the Cook-Walden Funeral Home from 11th and Colorado Avenues to North Lamar Street, where it continues to serve as an Austin landmark.
