While visiting some areas of Georgia, a friend and I stayed right across the border in Eufaula because it was the closest town with a motel. We ended up quite enjoying our stay there as we discovered all the things in the area. It is chock full of impressive historic homes and buildings as well as having some great natural beauty and wildlife on Lake Eufaula. (2020)
Eufaula is full of historic homes and mansions. The most well known there seem to be the post-war Shorter Mansion and antebellum Fendall Hall.
I thought the fanciful fairy statue in front of this house made it quite striking
Downtown Eufaula has many picturesque store fronts and old buildings like this one from 1903.
The Tree that Owns Itself: Eufaula is one of several towns famous for the oddity of having a tree which has been deeded the owner for itself and the land around.
Lake Eufaula is a huge artificial lake on the Albama/Georgia border that borders most of the town. There are many access points along it but one quite enjoyable one is Lakepoint State Park which lies right near the Eufaula Wildlife Refuge. It has boat docks and a great picnic area; we even saw an alligator out swimming the water.
