“A to-die-for collection of macabre memorabilia”
The garage behind Cawley & Peoples funeral home is home to the collection of William “Bill” Peoples, current owner and a funeral director at Cawley & Peoples. What started as a place to store and display his collection of antique cars—in particular, hearses—has grown over the years into a museum that includes clothing, caskets, and other grisly tools from the history of the funeral industry.
The star of the museum, however, is a fully-restored, 1927 Henney hearse, dubbed “Miss Henney.” The unique car was featured in Woody Allen’s Radio Days, Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs, and most recently Get Low, where it starred alongside Bill Murray, Robert Duvall, and Sissy Spacek. Peoples and his wife, Pat, were among the more than 1,000 extras that appeared in the film.
