Arkansas' First Crematory

The first crematory in the state of Arkansas was opened in 1974 in Conway. Located in Crestlawn Memorial Park, it was installed by Denver Roller, a leading funeral director in the state during his time. The original building stood until 2001 when it was destroyed by a fire. A new metal building and Matthews cremation equipment stand where the old building was.
