History

An architectural gem, Delano Mortuary provides one of the few small farming communities in America with a building designed by famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

In the late 1950s, owners Cecil and Betty LaCourse wanted to expand the Delano Mortuary building in downtown Delano. They purchased 10 acres of land on the edge of town and asked the famous Frank Lloyd Wright to design their new building.

Wright’s passing two weeks later marked the beginning of a long journey that wouldn’t see the building completed until 1967. Thanks to detailed drawings left by Mr. Wright and the dedication of the architects at Taliesin West, the integrity of Wright’s vision for this building was maintained.

Today, as a Dignity Memorial provider, Delano Mortuary has been restored to Wright’s original design. Our amazing facility, most likely the last design accomplishment of this master architect, is available, by appointment, to be toured.

"The staff worked very well with us. If we had a question and sent it through email our it was responded fast. They were all so helpful when it came down to questions, needing to add or remove things for the services and made us all feel more comfortable and a bit more relaxed that we knew the mortuary would take care of everything."
