As is often a tradition in Georgia towns and cities, one of the grandest homes in the city serves as a funeral home. This is the case in Sylvania, as well. This landmark is presently the Thompson-Strickland-Waters Funeral Home; I’m unsure about it’s builder/original owner but will update when I find out.

One of South Georgia’s grandest Queen Annes, the Swainsboro home of state legislator and prominent local businessman James Coleman is best remembered by recent generations as Shadowlawn Mortuary. And with that comes much talk of it being haunted.
Today, it’s a bed and breakfast known as The Coleman House Inn. The restaurant located here is a favorite with locals and travelers alike.
