Thrive Allen County will discuss over the next six months plans for the old Waugh, Yokum and Friskel Memorial Chapel after acquiring it earlier this month.

One of Iola’s most historic houses, the long-time home of the Waugh, Yokum and Friskel Memorial Chapel, has been acquired by Thrive Allen County.

Now, Thrive will take the next six months or so to decide what to do with the property, built as a residence in the waning days of the 19th century before being converted into a funeral home.

The property, at 16 N. Buckeye St., was acquired earlier this month from Feuerborn Family Funeral Service.
