McEwen Funeral Service, a family of funeral homes in Charlotte, has served the area since the early 1900s. Around 1908, R.J. McEwen began making coffins in Mint Hill, North Carolina, to help friends and neighbors who lost loved ones to a flu epidemic. R.J.'s son, Carl J. McEwen, began working with him in 1915, and they later began stocking caskets in their Mint Hill hardware store, R.J. McEwen and Son General Store. In 1921, the McEwens purchased a hearse and began servicing funerals.
As their business grew, R.J. and Carl opened McEwen Funeral Home of Mint Hill in 1926. In 1935, the stately funeral home was built on Matthews-Mint Hill Road, where the facility is currently located. Some reports state that people drove from miles around to see the construction of the beautiful brick building.
Building a strong reputation
McEwen Funeral Service also offered ambulance service for several decades. At the time, very few communities in the U.S. enjoyed air ambulance plane service as well, and McEwen was the sole provider in the southeast. The single engine bi-plane saved many lives in the 30s, and McEwen donated the plane to the war effort at the request of the federal government.
As a result of our high standards of quality and a strong reputation in the community, McEwen Funeral Service’s business grew rapidly. We opened a location in Monroe in 1935, and added another location on E. Morehead Street in Charlotte in 1947. We later expanded with locations in Derita in 1972, and in Pineville in 1993.
Today, we are honored to host thoughtful memorial services and funerals in Charlotte. While many aspects of our community has changed, we remain dedicated to our calling of compassionate care.
