The director's words

We are Jackson-Highley Funeral Home

In 1927, Jackson & Highley Funeral Home, Inc. was founded by Charlie James Jackson, also known as “Mr. Fred” and his partner Clark Highley. They were successful farmers in the Phillips County area following a dream to enter the funeral industry. Neither of them had any experience in funeral services but stepped out on blind faith and opened the first black funeral business in the area. At that time, this was one of the few professions open to black men. They combined their last names and named the business Jackson – Highley Funeral Home.
