The Fergus Falls facility contains a state-of-the-art crematorium, the first licensed crematory in Otter Tail County, licensed under the name of The Alternative Care Cremation Facility.
The Olson Funeral Home is located adjacent to Grotto Lake in the southeastern part of the City of Fergus Falls. Built in 1995, the funeral home is a modern facility. Our large parking lot can accommodate any gathering size. On the west side of the building is a large drive under canopy for dropping off and picking up visitors.
An addition was added in the Fall of 2014 which included a new chapel and reception area. The new technology that is integrated into the addition includes multiple screens and a camera to allow for tributes to be played. Our primary chapel can accommodate 200 people, providing ample seating for even the largest chapel service. The reception area can seat 124 comfortably for a catered sit down event. The original chapel is now repurposed as a gathering area as well as continuing to be used for smaller services.
With the glow of the gas fireplace, the foyer has a natural warmth for relaxed visiting. Also available for visitations are three other areas within the funeral home with seating capacities from 15 to 125 people. With a total of five separate visitation areas any size gathering can be accommodated. Our Lakeside Room was designed for casual fellowship and with the available kitchenette the fellowship is enhanced. Funeral arrangements are made in a homelike setting just steps away from the selection room containing a wide variety of caskets, urns, and outer burial containers.
Careful and reverent care is given to each person whom we are called upon to serve. All preparations are done on-site in our state-of-the-art preparation room.
