229 South Main

— Waterloo, Monroe Co. Ill., Laid Out in 1818 —

with his sons David and Paul.

Emil passed away in 1979 and David and Paul formed a new professional corporation that was widely known as the Quernheim Funeral Home. After generations of ownership of this building on Market Street, moved the business there in 1988 and sold the 229 South Main to Larry and Sandra Hurley, to be used as a residential home. The Hurley's later sold the property to David Kahn in 1992.

David was an attorney who used the bottom floor as a law office and the top floor as residential property. David and his wife, Elaine sold the property to Floyd E. Crowder in April 1997. Mr. Crowder subsequently sold to Monroe County Title Co., who then remodeled the entire first and second floors, removing an old spiral staircase and gutting the entire building to create a more business-like environment, and have been operating in this building ever since.
