Founded in 1925 in the heart of Ashland, Kentucky by John Steen. Steen Funeral Home was built to meet an unmet need in Boyd County for an elegant, warm, welcoming setting for a family to say goodbye, without the sterile look and feel of most modern-day funeral establishments. Our funeral home doesn't look like a funeral home, because we don't want it to feel like one. At Steen, guests never feel rushed, and are not bumping into strangers in our foyer. The home, with its tasteful decor and friendly professional staff, is yours to share with your guests, allowing you to focus on what's important. It was Steen’s mission to offer the highest level of service and professionalism. While we regularly pull out all the stops for those looking for a top-of-the-line celebration, we have always insisted on making funerals affordable. Our care is genuine, and the result is a comfortable, healing place where you can focus on your needs and finding a meaningful tribute that's right for your loved-one.
As friends and family members gather together to celebrate the life of a loved one, they hope for the experience to be meaningful. They hope for it to be intimate. They hope for it to be beautiful, memorable, and—ultimately—worthy of their dear friend or relative. At Steen, that’s what we hope for, as well—and we’re committed to doing everything we can to ensure that every memorial service or life celebration at our funeral home is planned and executed perfectly, right down to the smallest detail.
The Central Avenue Chapel serves as the main location of the Steen Funeral Homes. Founded in 1925 by John A. Steen, the chapel moved to its current location on Central Ave. in the mid-1940s. The funeral home has undergone many renovations during its years, the most recent being in 2006. It is well-equipped with a large funeral chapel, beautifully decorated visitation parlors, and a family lounge, all of which are ADA compliant. A setting was created with soft soothing colors and thoughtful design, every detail planned with our families in mind. You will feel at ease even during a most difficult time.
The 13th Street Chapel opened in 1999 to better serve our families as a branch of the Steen Funeral Home. It was visualized and constructed with utmost care and is located just two blocks from Rose Hill Burial Park. It is a state-of-the-art facility that is ADA compliant, with beautifully decorated visitation parlors, a large funeral chapel, a family lounge, and a children's activity room.
