Dunbar Funeral Home

The daily commute to work just got more interesting for folks traveling down Gervais Street. The beautiful Dunbar Funeral Home is being renovated by Historic Columbia Foundation and the USC School of Law. One of the resources being used to provide a historic visual guide to how the house looked when it was built is the book Modern Cotton Mill Engineering. The Walker Local and Family History Center digitized the book, and it is available online. Not only does the book feature the Whaley home but also several other homes that Whaley built in Columbia. Some still exist. Can you guess where they are?
