Property in Granville BID being developed into funeral home
April 23, 2018
The Granville Business Improvement District and Alderwoman Chantia Lewis welcome the newest location of Reid’s New Golden Gate Funeral Home.
Funeral home operator Arthur Reid Jr. has purchased the location, at the intersection of 76th Street and Calumet Road, with plans to raze the current building and develop the property. Groundbreaking is anticipated for later this year and the business, to be located at 7550 N. 76th St., is expected to open in 2019, according to the Granville BID.
Mr. Reid’s career in funeral service goes back to the 1950s before starting his own business. This will be the first time an African-American has built a funeral home facility in the City of Milwaukee, according to Alderwoman Lewis.
"It’s exciting to see yet another development in my district," said Ald. Lewis. "Whether it’s a long-time, established business owner like Mr. Reid or someone just starting out, the door is open in the 9th District for their interest and activity."
As always, Alderwoman Lewis invites the public and Aldermanic District 9’s community stakeholders to take a positive picture in the 9th District and explain why you love living and working there, and post it on social media at #New9thMKE.
