I'd never heard of, much less seen, a grave house until my buddy Frank Murphy brought the story of cemetery hunter John Waggoner, Jr. to my attention this morning:
Lately, Waggoner has focused his efforts on grave houses. He's located just more than 100 of the structures in seven states throughout the South. Some of the grave houses are built of logs, while others resemble miniature farmhouses. Virtually all the grave houses that Waggoner has located were built in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and, in many cases, there's not much left.

John and his wife Retta have documented their work online at their website, TheGraveWalkers.com.
