One doesn't have to be in Barbour County long before they begin hearing stories from days past. Founding fathers and war heroes, Southern belles and daring heroines, they all left their mark. Some people consider these stories tall tales, fact woven with imagination. Others hear their heels click beneath them on the hardwood as they tour the homes and take in the sights, slipping into nostalgia like you'd slip into a cool stream in mid July. These visitors can travel back in time and spend a lazy afternoon on the veranda watching the river roll by. To insightful travelers, Eufaula is more than pretty houses with magical allure, to these, Eufaula is indeed legendary.
