“Wonderful history”
Review of Shorter Mansion

Shorter Mansion
Ranked #1 of 15 things to do in Eufaula
Attraction details
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Walking into the Shorter Mansion is a trip back in time, the days when women wore petticoats and men wore suits. I could feel the history. Walking on hardwood floors that were hand crafted without electricity was something special. I would love to be a part of the annual pilgrimage, that must be a great tour.

Going through the Shorter Mansion feeling a ghostly presence. Then at the end of the tour I saw a picture with a ghost in the corner and a girl with half a face... So I think if you go in there try to feel for some paranormal activities

We enjoyed seeing the shorter mansion along with 18 other beautiful homes on the Eufaula Pilgrimage. The history behind this home is interesting and really makes the stop on the way to panama city worth while

Feel like you take a step back in time here. The best thing here is there antique clothing collection. They have period furniture, etc., but the antique clothes are awesome. Several rooms of the clothing to look at. Also unique antique children toys. You will enjoy the tour of this home.

Well maintained historical site with period furnishings and decorations. Self guided tour costs $5. Nice home and worth the admission.
