Images of Eufaula, AL (Lots of Old Houses) Part 3 of 4

We saw some beautiful homes and gardens on our trip to Eufaula, AL.
Some are just so beautiful, and so elegant, and so unforgettable that I
can't not put them on my blog.  If you like old homes, sit back, sip a
glass of ice tea, and enjoy.

Yes, those are  marble steps.

Those flat roofs are so expensive to repair.  Here they put a roof on
top of the flat roof.  Good solution.
The top of this house was called the Belvedere, or "beautiful view."
The belvedere was also an air conditioning system for the house.

And along this fence to the house above, I saw the yellow and pink
rose!  I have to find one to plant at my home.  I'm also putting the
picture on Pink Saturday.

As we walked along, we met other walkers and runners.  But it is
getting a little "hot."  Time to stop and get a glass of cold ice tea!
Hope you enjoyed the pictures.  I will blog one more time about
Eufaula, AL, when I share pictures of the Shorter Mansion.
Until then, have a great week!


  1. How lovely and elegant! My son went on a school field trip to Eufaula when he was working on his Building Science degree at Auburn University and he told me I would love visiting there. Now I see why. I love your pics. We may have to plan to day-trip there soon.

  2. Sherry, I hope you do go! There are over 700 homes that have been restored or are of a certain age:-) It's just a beautiful place to visit.

  3. Hi....I'm here from another blog where I saw your profile link in the comments....I'm very happy I did. I so love touring through the older sections of any city just to see the homes. They just don't build 'em like that anymore and what a shame.
