This house is on tour all year, I think. It was also on their Spring Tour along with other historical homes. Attended the Luncheon before the Christmas Tour, wonderful food, beautiful Christmas décor. One of those homes you want to visit over and over!

The Shorter Mansion is a very beautiful and elegant home. Well worth the $5 tour fee. A must see if you are in Eufaula.

Great to tour if one is in the area. Definitely high Victorian - there is an interesting display of christening, wedding and mourning outfits worn by either family or Eufaula society.

We attended a wedding reception at this elegant home, and it couldn't have been more beautiful! Whoever decided to restore and preserve this place should be applauded. My only complaint is the lack of parking. We walked about 2 blocks, which is only ok if...More
