Custom Made Monuments and Headstones in Peoria

Abel Vault and Monument is a fourth generation company that was founded by Bernard E. Abel in 1933. After winning a $5,000 baseball pool, Bernard bought land and all of the equipment he would need to start his own burial vault business. Ten years later, when a local buyer couldn’t afford a shipment of monuments sent from a Vermont distributor, he saw an opportunity to expand the business, and purchased the monuments. At that time the company took Abel Vault and Monument as its name.
