Visit this home every time in Eufaula, just something that draws you to it. Take the tour, very small fee and it's worth it. Tour takes you all the way up top to Widow's Walk. Attaching inside photos of home; enjoy!

The house itself is an excellent representation of the Italianate style. The craftsmanship done by hired slaves is fantastic.
