Scanlon Funeral Home was established in 1956 when James J. Scanlon opened the first funeral business in Harrisville, New York. He later expanded the firm by opening a second funeral home in Croghan, New York in 1973, and has since served the Lewis County area longer than any other funeral firm. Jim’s son, James E. Scanlon, associated with the funeral homes for many years, assumed ownership in 1998 and now runs the day to day operations of the family’s business.
