Faye Morris Sanders writes: This was the home of Rossie Shuman Adams. A very sweet lady who is missed by all the loved ones. I’ve been in the house a few times with my sister, Kaye Morris Shuman who used to married to Ms. Rossie’s son, Ashley Shuman. I can tell you that its a sweet little country home and everything always so neat and so pretty. I loved to walk in her kitchen; she always had something good to eat, whether country foods or home baked goodies! That woman could cook!

This unusual shotgun house is half the depth of a normal version and features ornamentation uncommon in Georgia examples. Peeking inside, its’ small size is confirmed; it would more correctly be called a single pen house.
This was likely a tenant property. It’s not much bigger than the average den or living room in most modern homes. But to me, it’s just as important to document these places as it is our finest architectural landmarks.
Pembroke is one of the newest county seats in Georgia, having been chosen for this distinction when the construction of Fort Stewart cut off the previous county seat, Clyde, from public access. Though it has not been formally documented, the courthouse, designed by Savannah architect Walter P. Marshall, was likely funded by the Department of Defense.

This mural was uncovered in 2011 when the City of Pembroke was working on revitalizing its downtown area. A new mural was planned for this wall, but when workers uncovered this one, it was decided that it was an important asset to the history of the community and was left intact. It was a great save on Pembroke’s part, as I’ve seen several historic murals painted over in towns all over South Georgia in the past few years. There’s a similar mural in Ochlocknee, though its condition is not as good.
