Myrtle Hill Cemetery launches new app

ROME, Ga. -- The Greater Rome Convention & Visitors Bureau will launch a new mobile app next month for visitors to the city's historic Myrtle Hill Cemetery.

The app features a tour with 65 sites throughout the 156-year-old cemetery. It includes a map, video, audio, text and photos.

"We've put over two years worth of historical research into this application," GRCVB communications director Chris Cannon said in a statement. "With this app, the experience is literally the same as having a historian touring you through the cemetery."

The GRCVB will hold an app launch party on Friday, May 3 at 4 p.m. It is free and open to the public, and will take place at the Sexton's house in the middle of the cemetery.

The app was funded by the Myrtle Hill/Oak Hill Memorial Association.
