How many of you saw the movie ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ staring Reese Witherspoon? At the beginning of the movie when she is driving into Alabama, it was being filmed in Eufaula and Shorter Mansion was one of the homes that was featured. This old southern beauty was built in 1884 and still looks great. It is used now for special events such as weddings and other public events. Eufaula and Lake Eufaula are built along the banks of the Chattahoochee River as is one of the most beautiful old style towns you will ever see.
