Our mortuary was founded in 1902 by John Gantt, Sr., and known as the Gantt Funeral Home. After Mr. Gantt retired, his sons John, Jr. and Joe ran the funeral home. Gantt Memorial Park was developed in 1954 as a perpetual care cemetery under South Carolina Law. Now known as Liberty Memorial Gardens, it offers in ground and above ground burial.

James. T. Holtzclaw purchased the funeral home January 1, 1984. Shortly thereafter it was renamed Liberty Mortuary. Our family philosophy is that we want our families to call us for the service we provide, regardless of whose name is on the sign. Each of our employees, whether it be a Holtzclaw or not, should be able to provide the same level of service to our families.

In 1993 we moved to our current location directly behind where the old funeral home stood. Our new facility originally was a doctor's home which we gutted and then added to on either side. Unlike some funeral homes in older homes, ours now looks like a completely new building. We now have a full size chapel with seating for approximately 250 people. We also have three visitation rooms, a conference room, and a state of the art casket selection room, with bronze and granite memorial displays.

On January 17, 2001 our president James T. Holtzclaw died, and his son Gene Holtzclaw became the president and owner. Currently Gene and his son Brad operate the funeral home.

In late 2001 we began a massive remodeling of our current location. Now the entire funeral home has new handcrafted furniture, with special attention given to seating height for the elderly. Also the selection room was remodeled and we added a full size cremation display for the families we serve.
