    Is this where a funeral home was in the 60’s?

      No – it was an old convent.

    This building wasn’t an old convent. You are thinking of the brick building at the corner of M and East Broadway. The nuns from St. Brigid lived there before the new convent was built on N Street. The building at 838 has always been an apartment or condo building. An older family member said that in the 1930s a doctor and his family lived there and that he saw patients on the first floor, but I only have that story to go by. Family has lived a few doors down for decades….
    A condo unit in the building sold just before Thanksgiving for $499,000. The units are quite small – the recently-sold condo was about 600 square feet.
