E.M. Blackburn, Sr. came to Amarillo in 1918 at the invitation of his two brothers Walter and Jeff. In 1918, E.M. Blackburn purchased the Eakle Funeral Home and in 1919 opened Blackburn’s Funeral Directors on S. Polk St. The building stood where IH-40 intersects S. Polk Street today. As the business grew, Mr. Blackburn relocated to the corner of 5th and Pierce and built Amarillo’s first Funeral Chapel in 1941.
You are welcome to call us any time of the day, any day of the week, for immediate assistance. Or, visit our funeral home in person at your convenience.
