A longtime funeral home and crematory in Springfield is investing more than $2 million into its property on North Limestone Street as it looks to expand and update services that are in demand.

Littleton and Rue started construction in November ona 5,500 square-foot building that will allow for memorial gatherings, funeral services and cremations. The local family-owned business held a dedication to its new project on Tuesday. RCS Construction, which has offices in Celina, Tipp City and Springfield, was hired for the project.

The new structure, which will be called The Landing at Littleton and Rue, will be located near the funeral businesses’ main building. It will have large windows and an indoor fireplace, as well as an outdoor patio and a front lawn where families can gather.

It is expected to be completed by October 2022.

“A lot of times after services, wherever they are at, people are looking for a moderate space they can get together and maybe have a meal or just have an exchange of time where they can be together. This space will do that,” said Rob Rue, co-owner of the funeral business.
