Eufaula (you-fall-uh ) means “ high bluff” in the language of the Creek Indians tribes that once occupied this area. In 1823, men from Georgia, looking for fertile crop land, established a permanent white settlement on these high bluffs and the town became a major shipping and trading point for counties in GA and AL. Along with the growth of this area and the wealth that followed - many impressive antebellum homes and businesses were established. In 1965, the Eufaula Heritage Association was formed to prevent the loss of these historic treasures. One of these impressive homes was once home to governor of Alabama and Eufaulian, John Gill Shorter. Built in 1906, the Shorter Mansion is on the National Register of Historic Places. The town proudly boasts of over 700 structures on the National Register of Historic Places.
