A celebration to 75 years of local service for one of the community's largest furniture distributors was held at the historical Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center Sunday.

Current and former Spiller Furniture employees along with others close to the business were on hand to celebrate

Prior to showcasing some of West Alabama's best when it comes to art, the venue once was home to the original family-owned and operated Spiller Furniture gallery.

While the showroom is no longer one of Spiller's 13 locations, the business that started there 75 years ago remains in the family's possession.
