The 18-room Victorian era residence recently underwent extensive renovations to repair areas of the home that were damaged in a flood, providing the opportunity to restore many of the beautiful, original attributes of the home. This Phaneuf Funeral Home is considered one of the last remaining neighborhood funeral homes. Once the residence of Eugene Quirin, one of the original prominent French Canadians of the era, the home can be found on the NH Registry of Historic Homes.
Although experiencing a great deal of damage from the flood, the historical aspects of the property were kept intact, including a turret and large porch. This funeral home also offers modern amenities including a projection screen for video tributes, chapel and large café-style gathering space.
The Phaneuf Funeral Home Open House is free to the public. Refreshments will be served. If you are interested in the full Walking Tour offered by the Manchester Historic Society, please visit their website for ticket information. We hope you will be able to join us for the open house.
