We stopped by here from Atlanta on our way to Destin Florida. We always drive this route, and this time we stopped. We toured this lovely old mansion. Amazing history, and beautifully decorated for Christmas. Friendly folks who give a nice tour.

Beautiful and beautifully taken care of by loving locals.Charming docents to answer your questions and museum on second floor is a must.Open daily but closed for special events.Lovely setting for weddings and special occasions. Add this to your list when driving from Atlanta to those Gulf Coast beaches!!

Not only is the conversation wonderful at this place, but it is also a paradise for history buffs and lovers of eclectic knowledge. Massive Civil War flag upstairs, a stuffed tiger from Indonesia, and gorgeous vintage dresses are key highlights here. Must Visit!

Schedule plenty of time to enjoy this gem. The museum upstairs is extensive. Our tour guide, Pat or Pam??, was excellent. Congratulations to Eufaulians who in 1965 had the gumption to save the Shorter Mansion.

We loved visiting the Shorter Mansion. Our tour guide was the sweetest lady and knew so much about the house and everything in it. We loved the beautiful architecture and the lovely collection of antiques upstairs.

Our friend took us there. Wonderful architecture, furniture, and memorabilia. Can be rented for parties, weddings, etc. The docent was very informative as she guided us from room to room.

The mansion had been reserved for a wedding but the lovely bride allowed us to tour the home. Was so impressed with the maintaining of history. Very nice people in charge along with the outside landscaper

I have wanted to tour the homes in Eufaula for years so this was a great experience. The docents are very knowledgeable and helpful. I plan on going again in 2017 to tour the homes. Once is not enough.
