Explore Old Fairview Cemetery & Arboretum

Developed by city planners, the Olmsted Brothers, in 1868, the Fairview Cemetery and Arboretum is not your average burial plot. With a hundred different species of trees on-ground, this is a beautiful spot to peruse. Entered into the American Public Garden Association, after Dr. Tom Ombrello cataloged a number of the trees, this is truly a highlight of Eufaula. The graves themselves hold a historical menagerie of Confederate soldiers, formative citizens, and the Jewish demographic.

Bike On Yoholo Micco, The Creek Indian Trail

It is named after legendary Creek chief, Yoholo Micco, who was known for his bravery and eloquence, and who represented the Creek people in Washington D.C. in 1825 over land rights. Today, the Yoholo Micco trail traverses through the same territory that the Creek people once inhabited. Whether you prefer to bike or walk, the trail is a great way to discover hidden gems such as nesting bald eagles, a cemetery, and a waterfall. Begin the 2.5-mile (4-km) trail in town at the Eufaula Chamber of Commerce.

The house features a magnificent Italian marble floor, wide front porch, overhanging eaves with ornate brackets, twin columns, a cupola, and railings around the cupola. As one of the most exceptional examples of Italianate architecture in the US, Fendall Hall is a must-see destination for history and architecture enthusiasts.

Day Trip To Dothan Area Botanical Gardens

The Dothan Area Botanical Gardens is a non-profit organization founded in 1991 and located on a picturesque 50-acre farmstead purchased from the Whiddon family of Headland in 1994.

Whether you're a nature lover, gardening enthusiast, or simply seeking a peaceful outdoor escape, the Dothan Area Botanical Gardens offers something for everyone.

Visit The Tree That Owns Itself

So obscure you just have to see it, this legendary oak tree sincerely has self-sovereignty in the town, claiming, “Only God can make a tree.” Beloved by local Eufaulans, the tree was originally declared autonomous in attempts to protect it. When it was struck down by lightning in 1961 (then 200 years old), a replacement oak was planted, with the same rights.

Take A Picture With Manny

In honor of Eufaula being the "Big Bass Capital of the World," it is only appropriate that we have a big bass named manny, in honor of renowned fisherman, Tom Mann, who helped make Eufaula a fisherman's paradise. A pic by this larger-than-life fish is a must-do when visiting Eufaula.

Walk Down The Seth Lore Irwinton Historic District

The Seth Lore and Irwinton Historic District remains the largest historic district in east Alabama, as well as the second-largest in the state. Encompassing over 700 structures on the National Register of Historic Places, the district stretches throughout the oldest part of town.
