New Bangor Website Makes Navigating Mt. Hope Cemetery Easy

There’s a lot of history buried in a 180 year old cemetery, and now at Bangor’s Mount Hope Cemetery the folks that created that history are a lot easier to find. The cemetery which is located off State Street and Mt. Hope Avenue spans 264 acres and is one of the nation’s oldest cemeteries.

Now, with the new search feature and map, it’s pretty easy to find just about anyone who’s been buried there.
