Henry County Chain Gang Cemetery

On Workcamp Rd. McDonough  there is located the ruins of the old chain gang
Building.  To  the West of the structure along the hillside is the undermined
Number of graves of prisoners who died in the chain gang.  These graves were
Begun around the early 1900’s to the time of about 1950.   These graves were
Not marked.  The graves were pointed out to our staff member in 1973 when
The chain gang shed and the site of the graves could still be discerned.  This
Cemetery will  be lost to county development.
