In 1856, Henry W. Winkler and his brother, Julius F. Winkler, opened Winkler Furniture Company and an undertaking service in Lexington. This was four years after the famous Saluda disaster, the worst Steamboat catastrophe in Missouri River history. The explosion of the steamboat, Saluda, carrying Mormons westward toward Utah, left at least 135 dead, mostly unidentified. There was no formal undertaking business in Lexington at that time so local churches gathered and buried the dead.
The furniture factory opened by the original Winkler brothers sat just east of the present funeral home. This factory not only made caskets, but a line of fine furniture and trim which became very popular throughout this part of Missouri. Later a second Winkler generation took over the furniture and funeral business, they were Albert Winkler and Oswald Winkler, sons of Julius F. and Henriette Winkler.
