Benson Funeral & Cremation Service

We are now open for business and we look forward to providing the services of Funeral and Cremation to the residents of this wonderful community.

When Benny Benson and Michael Fuller looked for a location to start their business venture, Mt. Holly, NC was our choice. When we looked at the location and availability of the former American Legion Post 152 building at 101 Oak Grove Street, Mt. Holly, NC we knew we found what we were looking for. Seeing the growth in the Mt. Holly-Belmont area as well as the eastern part of Gaston County, this was it. We both loved the community and small town character. It seems as though this building has been used as a gathering spot for many years providing a place for wedding receptions, birthday parties, graduations, etc. Knowing this building was an American Legion Post, just think of all the history this place has. We found some newspapers from 1954 with photos of the legion baseball team and a flag with just 48 stars! It seems this place is set for a new beginning to carry on the gathering tradition as the community will now gather here to celebrate someone’s life, share stories and memories.
