Gough GA Burke County Old Schoolhouse Abandoned Funeral Home Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2014

The owner of the adjacent properties told me this was a funeral home for as long has he could remember.  I believe it could have originally been a schoolhouse or church.

For many years, this served as Stapleton’s post office. I believe there was a store here, as well, and later, a funeral home.

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.
