The Mount Hope Cemetery held an open house to unveil its new state-of-the-art crematory.

The cemetery manager was on hand to answer questions about cremation. There were also tours of the facility.

One of the features includes a viewing room for families to hold services during the cremation process.

"It's really state of the art, no one in the city has this at this time," said cemetery manager Jeffery Simmons. "It offers a great opportunity for the families to have great services when they commit their loved ones."

Mount Hope Cemetery performs more than 1,000 cremations every year.
