Now a bed and breakfast inn, the Kehoe House is a center of tourist activity on Columbia Square. Built by an Irish immigrant iron worker who became one of the most prominent businessmen in the city, the house has had a storied history. After the Kehoe heirs sold it in 1930 it served as a boarding house and funeral home before being purchased by football legend Joe Namath in 1980. He originally planned on turning it into a night club but those plans never materialized and he sold it in 1989. Many tourists believe it to be haunted, likely from its days as a funeral home.

    Beautiful capture for this old Savannah structure – what a storied past, but great restoration, too. (saw image you might like while traveling South on Hwy 15 at Bristol; there on right was long lane, leading up to old farm house dwelling) Blessings on your day, and vision.
