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.

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.
