Dukes-Harley Funeral Home⁠

The Dukes-Harley Funeral Home⁠ was originally built as a private residence for Mr. & Mrs. W.S. Lining, a prominent cotton broker, ca. 1904. In 1896, W. Hampton “Hampy” Dukes started Dukes Undertaking. In 1927, a cousin, Clifton Harley, joined Hampy Dukes, and then three years later, his brother I.S. Harley, joined the business which became Dukes-Harley Funeral Home. In 1936, they moved the business to this stately Greek Revival mansion. The home burned in 1999, but the facade was restored around 2015.
