In May of 1979, Barney Hampton of Hampton Funeral Service in Boone, North Carolina, and Dennis Henson formed a partnership to establish a funeral home in Johnson County, Tennessee. On September 12 of that year, Hampton-Henson Funeral Home was opened on Cold Springs Road in Mountain City. In December of 1980, Dennis Henson purchased Barney Hampton's interest in the business and changed the name of the firm to Henson Funeral Home.
The funeral home, which was designed and built by Hampton and Henson, features a large reception area, church-type chapel, two visitation rooms, a casket selection room, preparation room, and offices. The level lot has ample paved parking.
Dennis Henson owned and managed the funeral home until 1993 when he became associated with Heritage Family Funeral Services. Dennis remained as manager of the funeral home until 2002 when he retired from funeral service. In July of 2010 the name was changed to Johnson County Funeral Home and acquired new ownership. The building was designed and built by Barney Hampton. The facilities of Johnson County Funeral Home are second to none and include a formal chapel, visitation areas, casket selection room, and private lounges.COMING SOON, OUR HEROES CHAPEL!
