Branam Funeral Home is a proud and important part of the City of Homestead's history. Branam Funeral Home has served generations of Homestead families in our almost 100 years of existence.
The City of Homestead is the second oldest city in Miami-Dade County. The South Dade area opened to homesteaders in 1898. At the time, the only way in and out of the area was through a path called the "Homesteaders Trail." In 1904, Henry Flagler decided to extend the railroad to Key West from Miami. In 1912, the Overseas Railroad was completed, and in 1913, the City of Homestead was incorporated.
In 1911, Branam Funeral Home began as Turner Funeral Home, which operated out of the Davis residence and has been at the same location ever since.
In the 1950s, ambulances were provided and maintained by Turner Funeral Home. When Edward Branam bought Turner Funeral Home, he changed the name of the funeral home to Branam Funeral Home, but continued the funeral home's support of the local Volunteer Ambulance Corps and provided drivers and attendants. On November 4, 1961, Mr. Branam donated a new ambulance to the Tavernier Volunteer Corps Islamorada and the day was declared “Edward Branam Day” for his community service.
Since the City of Homestead grew around the funeral home, we are now located at the center of a bustling metropolitan city. Branam Funeral Home proudly became a part of the Memorial Plan network and carries on the legacy of serving the Homestead community with professionalism.
