Eufaula’s Historic District, with over 700 structures listed in the National Register of Historic Places, reflects the city’s rich history and splendid architecture. Eufaula was rich enough in the nineteenth century to establish its cultural identity and poor enough in the twentieth to retain it.
Eleven historic homes, built in the days when "cotton was king", will be open to visitors during this annual, nostalgic, return to the Old South. These ante-bellum and Victorian mansions built by 19th century planters and merchants still house precious family heirlooms of a bygone era. Seven of the homes will be open during the day and four will be open in the evening for a candlelight tour.


Individual tickets are on sale at the door of all of the homes on the tour. Several tickets packages are available at the ticket office located in the First Presbyterian Church. The ticket packages feature various combinations of the seven daytime homes, four candlelight homes, four garden tours, wine and cheese tasting and the antique show.
