The name of it was Eufaula. Such a beautiful town I fell completely in love with it immediately. In fact, I was only planning on passing through Alabama on my journey to Florida, but Eufaula stopped me. For 2 days I spent my time in the town, taking pictures of the beautiful mansions, eating at a place called Phil's bbq, and enjoying the shops of the town. What do you folks that live in Alabama think about Eufaula? Is there any interesting history of the town that you know of? I was so aww'd by the town, I would love to know more about it, anything you know feel free to post, and I thank you in advance for it.

Please forgive me for posting twice on my own thread, I do not want to seem like a spammer. But I am also very curious about what kind of jobs are there, and what the weather is like in the summer. Wishful thinking perhaps , oh but who can blame me!

It's a great town. I think it needs a little more industry, to be sure, and a little more money in the bank.

Eufaula is an excellent town. I have spent a lot of my life there. Wonderful people, excellent city school system and a even better private school. As for the job market, it seems to be a little slow due to the economy but I think Eufaula has a bright future mostly due to tourism and the lake. Its located just more than an hour south of Columbus, GA. 50 miles N. of Dothan and 90 miles West of Montgomery so its stratigecially located for growth. As for the history, there is a very long and rich history there! I couldn't possibly name it all here but Eufaula began as a Creek Indian settlement. You can read up more on the history below.

Gorgeous little town! Because of your post hubby and I are looking at places to stay and maybe head down for a weekend! They should hire you to promote their town - I'd never heard of it!

Eufaula is no secret to many as it has been featured in Reirement re-location books/magazines

In fact, the three places featured extensively in the puiblications I read, had to do with lakes---------Alexander City/Lake Martin, Guntersville, and Eufaula.

I've been to 2 out of the 3, but not Eufaula yet.

Just wait until Eufala hosts its open-house. Once a year a number of the Antebellum houses open their doors to visitors.

I agree about trying to see the yearly tour of homes that Eufaula does. Some of those historic homes are amazing!!!! We have family there that love living there but they own their own business and work solely from home, so finding work wasn't a major factor in their move.
