Stephen H. Hines established his namesake funeral company in 1873. After operating from various locations in Silver Spring, S.H. Hines Funeral Company settled into a building at 1715 14th St. NW just after the turn of the 20th century. From there, the business operated as a casket company, wholesaler of funeral supplies, embalmer and undertaker.
Stephen’s son, W.R. Franklin “Frank” Hines, had joined the firm by 1914, when it was renamed S.H. Hines & Sons Company. Sometime after 1920, the growing business needed more space, so father and son purchased the houses at 2901-2907 14th St. NW and converted them to a funeral home.
In 1953, Michael J. Rinaldi started his Rinaldi Funeral Home, which was 1st located on H Street Northeast in Washington, D.C., and then later on Georgia Avenue Northwest.
A funeral home partnership forms
In the late 60s, Frank and Michael partnered up, combining resources and operating both the Maryland and District of Columbia funeral homes. However, after the 6 days of riots that erupted in Washington, D.C., following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968, the Hines and Rinaldi families decided to relocate their entire funeral business to a new facility in Silver Spring.
That new location opened in 1972 as Hines-Rinaldi Funeral Home on New Hampshire Avenue. Frank remained president of the company until he retired in 1991. In 2012, Hines-Rinaldi Funeral Home became part of the Dignity Memorial® network, the largest group of funeral, burial, cremation and cemetery service providers in North America.
Traditional Jewish funeral services
Hines-Rinaldi Funeral Home is the only funeral home in Maryland contracted to perform funeral services by the Jewish Funeral Practices Committee of Greater Washington. We have private facilities to perform tahara and shmira, if desired, and our dedicated funeral home staff works with rabbis and congregational committees to perform all the requirements.
