The Salm-McGill & Tangeman Funeral Home is the oldest continuously operated business in Sidney and Shelby County. It was established by Fred Salm in 1866. The facility was at one time located at the former Goffena Furniture Store, in downtown Sidney, Ohio. The current location, on South Ohio Ave., was the residence of C.F. Hickok.

Only two families, the Hickoks and the Salms, have owned this turn-of-the-century home. Morton remained in the firm until 1883, when he sold his interest to Isaac Betts. This partnership continued until 1885, when Fred Salm bought out the entire firm. In 1896 he sold an interest in the undertaking business to O.B. Taylor, and the firm took the name: Salm & Taylor.

Fred had 3 sons, William F., Edward F., and Louis M. William F. Salm also entered the furniture business and later became an assistant embalmer with an official license. The other son of Fred, Louis M., attended embalming school in Cincinnati in 1920. One of Louis M. Salm's sons, William E., also attended the Cincinnati College of embalming.

In 1940 Louis M. became owner of the funeral home, along with his son, Willam E, as co-owner. William E. Salm's daughter, Judith, was not involved with the funeral home, but her son, Douglas W. McGill, came into the business full-time in 1988. He is a licensed embalmer and funeral director.
