The original Trefz facility was established in 1928 as a funeral home at 114 West Main Street in Hummelstown by Jacob Stump and his wife Jennie. In 1946, after his discharge from World War II, the late Harry G. Trefz joined the firm and eventually purchased it from the Stumps. He owned and operated the funeral home with his wife Emily Kindt Trefz until her death in 1976. In 1977 he married Patricia Bittner Hall and continued serving the community and it's surrounding area until his death in 1988 when his widow and her son, Stephen R. Hall, took over the operation of the funeral home.
The former Bowser Funeral Home was originally established in 1881 as the William Karmany Funeral Home and was located at 2 East Main Street in Hummelstown. The Karmany family operated this home until late 1931 when it was purchased by Herbert N. Bowser, renaming it the Bowser Funeral Home. Upon Herbert's death in 1973, the Bowser family continued to operate this facility until 1979 when they sold their interest in the funeral home to Richard Buse, who retained the Bowser Funeral Home name until 1989 when the Harry G. Trefz Funeral Home, Inc. purchased the Bowser Funeral Home from Buse and at that time all records and operations were moved to 114 West Main Street and the present Trefz & Bowser Funeral Home, Inc. was formed.
