    Wow this house has more than its fair share of great architectural details inside and out. The Moorish styled mantle piece is one of the most unique I’ve ever seen. Eufaula is full of great houses like this.

    Once again, there are no pictures of the kitchen! Had to call the agent – left a message…

    The arches and stairway are impressive — the inside stained glass, the basement Palladio-style window (!), and that mantle-piece with surround is simply outstanding. I had to keep going back to look at it, every single piece pictured.

    We stopped in Eufaula overnight once to break a long trip to the Gulf Coast beaches and found this small town filled with some wonderful houses. It is so remarkable that even Hollywood discovered it for a pseudo-Southern film or two. . .

    Great house here with many individualistic details. The exterior presents a Southern center hall design and in some ways looks older than 1890. The interior immediately becomes more exotic and more difficult to classify stylistically. Moorish influences seem almost alien appearing in the deep South but this is not the first house in the region displaying Moorish touches. The antebellum Haller Nutt/Longwood octagonal house in Natchez, MS was designed with Moorish details by Philadelphia’s acclaimed architect Samuel Sloan but due to the outbreak of conflict in 1861 it was forever left unfinished. This house in Eastaboga, AL, https://www.oldhousedreams.com/2017/11/13/eastaboga-al/ was featured on these pages and was equally exotic with a blend of Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, and large, graceful Moorish arches in the foyer.
    Some of the delicate details here look to have been custom made by a local craftsman or cabinetmaker like the stylized glass door cabinet with a patterned shingle “roof” and fretwork details. The columned Moorish mantel must have been altered as it seems unlikely that the center two columns would be dangling in the air without a shelf or base of support under them. All in all, I like the quirky personality of this house and the creativity on display. Eufaula has had a number of its fine period homes featured on Old House Dreams and after seeing this one, I understand why.

      John, you should write a book, “I like the way you talk”, 😉

        Well, Thanks Mike. The problem is that books about history or old houses never are best sellers. If I tried to live from writing books I’d probably starve to death. I’d rather write commentaries here and not worry about it being of any value except perhaps to fellow old house nuts like myself.

    A lovely home; I’m wondering if the porch was added later.

    The home of jeweler John Henry Whitlock (1837-1900), his wife Clara, son John B., and brother George. The Whitlocks came south from New York state before the Civil War and opened their store in Eufaula in 1865. John B. Whitlock later lived here and worked as an optometrist, and the Whitlock Jewelry Store is still open in Eufaula.
