o riginally, the Hoffmann Memorial Funeral Home first opened in 1914, under the direction of J. William Hoffmann, Richard Hoffmann's father. The facility was located at 55 Madison Street in Tiffin. It was not until 1937 that the business moved to its current location, 236 South Washington Street in Tiffin, which was formerly known as the Sewalt Mansion. To accommodate the lifestyle of a funeral home, parts of the mansion were renovated. The front rooms, foyer, and carriage house, were part of the original Sewalt Mansion, the rest of the funeral home was rebuilt to accommodate the families the funeral home served.
