Over 30 years ago the groundwork was laid that would transform over 30 acres of citrus groves into Pinellas County?s most outstanding Memorial Park. The goal was to provide the most comprehensive memorial care at a beautiful location, and bring peace of mind to thousands of families in Pinellas, Pasco and Western Hillsborough counties. Curlew Hills started its operations on March 1, 1979 with the 30-acre forested Memory Gardens. In 1980, the first Mausoleum complex, and Fountain of Garden was built along with a cemetery office. Next came our Scatter Garden and Cremorial Garden that were built in 1983. Plans for a funeral home across the lake from the cemetery office were initiated in 1987. The funeral home was built in 1988 and transformed Curlew Hills into the first ?full-service triple combination facility? and the only independently owned facility of its type in the tri-country area. In 1990, Curlew Hills was invited to join the ?Order of the Golden Rule,? a prestigious organization of funeral homes located throughout the United States. Thus, 1995 saw the completion of the Garden of Devotion followed by the Garden of Peace in 1996. In 1998 construction began on the Meditation Mausoleum complex which was completed in early 1999. 2003 saw the completion of Private Family Mausoleums and Estates, and the planning of Meditation Estates and Lawn Crypts. In 2007, sales were started in Curlew Hills newest mausoleum, Whispering Pines. This magnificent building will have 3 climate controlled indoor chapels, while offering beautiful views of the surrounding lakes and trees.
