reconstruction era, the Culpepper House later belonged to Dr. Wilbur

For those of you wondering, a Jan. 4, 1979, article in the Newnan
Times-Herald, suggests "'spirits" lurk at the Culpepper House.
The article remembered Dr. Wilbur Culpepper as "Senoia's longstanding
doctor, who occupied the house beginning in 1902." It's here, Dr.
Culpepper must have told stories about his father,
E. M. Culpepper, a wheelwright with
Company B, 1st Reg. GA. Cavalry during the Civil War. The elder
Culpepper died in service to the Confederacy sometime after June, 1864,
the date of the last record with the Confederate service. The
death of Culpepper's father was noted in his aunt's Bible. Later, a
niece of Dr. Culpepper would tell the whole story. She says
Culpepper's Confederate father was killed in the Civil War near
Macon. He was in the cavalry. A survivor who was near him in the
battle said the order was given for every fourth man to dismount and go
forward. The one to whom this order applied hesitated. The elder
Culpepper took his place and was killed in action...
Alas, your innkeepers insist the only true spirit you'll find at the
Culpepper House is the spirit of hospitality! The Culpepper House
has been mentioned in Southern Homes, Country Living and Metro South
magazines. It was also the focus of a LA Times article on B & B's.
