Lake Shore Burial Vault was founded by Hubert J. McQuestion along with his mother Mary and his brother William McQuestion in 1911 as a precast concrete producer specializing in concrete burial vaults and boxes. Located in Kenosha, WI, they primarily serviced the counties of Racine and Kenosha under the name of North Shore Cement Burial Vault Company.

The primary goals of the company soon earned Hubert the reputation for being an honest businessman, who was good to his customers, his employees and fair with his competition.

The company moved to Milwaukee, WI in 1936 which would later change the name to Lake Shore Burial Vault Company. During the next twenty years, the company flourished, becoming the largest supplier of burial vaults in Southeastern Wisconsin.

During the mid 1950s the company built a new manufacturing plant in Brookfield, WI. Recognizing a growing market for septic systems, the company devoted their resources to the development of septic tank designs and entered this marketplace early in the 1960s.
