The funeral industry has evolved from parlor, to home, to chapel over the years. Oftentimes the owners of a funeral establishment lived on the premises, and some still do. Another frequent connection was having a funeral business associated with a furniture store. The first mention of anything to do with funeral establishments in Wheatland was an ad in the January 12, 1900 edition of the “Wheatland World” for “Coffins, Caskets and Undertaker’s Supplies” at McCallum & Crain’s.

From 1916 thru 1942 the funeral home was owned by various funeral directors. In 1942 Ted Schrader purchased Watson-Dennis Funeral Home. In 1943 the name was changed to Schrader Funeral Home. The business was bought by Harley Prell in July 1975 and the name was changed to Schrader-Prell Funeral Home. In 1988 Ross and Biff Gorman purchased the funeral home and monument works and operate under the name Gorman Funeral Homes-Platte Chapel.
