PEORIA, Ill. -- The American Mausoleum in Peoria is beginning a new chapter with a new look.
In 2008, the Peoria County State's Attorney office took over the run-down facility. On Friday, Peoria County State's Attorney Jerry Brady showed off the new and improved building.
Repairs include new roof, heating and air conditioning and plumbing.
Brady says his office is dedicated to the families of those interred at the mausoleum and asks for help in recovering lost information.
"Because of the bankruptcy process, we don't have all the names of those veterans who have been placed here," said Brady. "So if families who have loved ones here, and know they were veterans. We ask for that information so we can properly show respect."
The public is invited to a special Memorial Day ceremony at the American Mausoleum Saturday at 10:30 a.m.
