About Us

Crisp Funeral Home was established in 1997 by Michael L. Crisp to better serve the families of Swain County and surrounding areas. On October 1, 2013, Mike decided to retire and sell the funeral home to his long time employees, Nathaniel and Christopher Ledford. The Ledford's took over managing the funeral home at this time and the sale was completed on November 1, 2013. Nathaniel and Christopher were both born in Swain County and raised in the Alarka community. Crisp Funeral Home remains locally owned and operated. If anyone has any questions or concerns about the change of ownership you are encouraged to contact us and we will be glad to talk to you about it.
