The mansion is filled with beautiful period furnishing and an excellent museum. My granddaughters particularly liked the display of wedding dresses and christening gowns. The docent who greeted us was very informative and friendly. I’d like to go back when I have more time!

Touring the Shorter Mansion was one of the high points of our visit to Eufaula. Well worth the time and effort.

Built in 1884 and renovated and added on to, in 1906. Now Owned and run by the historical society in town. Admission to this and other mansions each, as of this post, is $6-$7 adults. The furnishings in the home are not original to it, but most are from that period of time. There are very few civil war era Items there. The 17 column structure in the front of the home is very unique. This home or one similar to the time period here, is fun to tour.

It's not every town that takes the time and care to cherish and share their history. This beautifully restored and maintained antebellum mansion houses wonderful memorabillia of the town and its antedescedents. Everything from photographs, uniforms, gorgeous dresses, gowns, shoes/slippers for the tiniest of women. There are gorgeous pianos. The rooms are represented with lovely furniture. The hostess for the day had taken a fall a day or two earlier at her home, but there she was, in obvious pain, but made my family and me most welcome to explore every floor, every room, every niche and cabinet. If you are a fan of fine china - you will see cabinets full of exquisite pieces and the most amazing sideboard in the diningroom that had storage bins on top of it for the silverware. It is the kind of place that we will go back to just to see what we may have missed the first time. There is just so much to see, so many details and delights to catch your eye and fuel your imagination. I hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did ours.

Definitely worth the $5 fee for the personal tour of this beautiful historic mansion. The main floor has the guided tour of the home and information about the Shorter family. The upstairs houses a collection of historic clothes, photos and life in the south through the years. It also has photos and information about Georgia governors, political figures and history. It was an interesting addition to the civil rights based tour around the two state area we were doing as the stark contrast in Southern life, standards and beliefs between the different lifestyles Beautiful home and I’m glad that the historical society of the area has purchased and kept this house there.
