Rader Funeral Home was established more than 120 years ago and is the oldest funeral home business in Botetourt County.
The changes that have overwhelmed the Botetourt area have indeed changed the funeral home itself. Rader was established in 1898 in the small town of Troutville, Virginia, where Mr. Rader (Ryder) opened his doors as a funeral home even though the building was actually a small shed where he also conducted a carpentry business. There, Mr. Rader built coffins and other cabinetry, a skill often carried into funeral homes in the early days.
