Chance Grave House-Haralson County, Georgia

Some taphophiles will differentiate between grave houses and grave shelters. Grave houses look like a home (see Nadine’s playhouse), whereas grave shelters are wooden with fences and a simple roof. I don’t differentiate them. One is just a more elaborate cover than the other.

Grave houses are primarily found in the southern United States, especially those resembling a picket fence.

This grave house is located in the District Line United Methodist Church cemetery. it is the final resting place of William H. Chance (1835-1862) and Mary Chance (1835-1905.)
