The State Room in Philadelphia, PA

The State Room* offers a unique and comfortable setting for the joyous gathering of fellowship and remembrance in honoring and celebrating a life well lived.

There is a timeless, sacred value in the irreplaceable opportunity for family and friends to come together after a loss to pay a fitting tribute, share their grief, and begin their journey of healing. It is our goal to facilitate a meaningful experience which appropriately provides that sacred value for today’s families and friends.

Learn more about the genesis of The State Room, and an explanation of how it works.
