Located on the banks of the Chattahoochee River, Eufaula and Cuthbert boast an extensive collection of beautifully maintained historic homes.

Join us this fall for the highly anticipated Ramble in Eufaula, Alabama and Cuthbert, Georgia.

Follow us as we cross the Chattahoochee River—and our state line—to one of the most picturesque and historic towns in the South. Eufaula, Alabama is home to a variety of antebellum mansions, Greek Revival houses and Italianate showplaces. Tour the Seth Lore and Irwinton Historic District, the largest historic district in east Alabama. It showcases an extensive collection of Italianate architecture, including the impressively restored Fendall Hall, built in 1856.

Finish the weekend by rambling to nearby Cuthbert, Georgia. Enjoy brunch at the impressive Greek Revival style Clarke-McDonald House, home to the president of Andrew College. Explore the Cuthbert Historic District, which includes a variety of Greek Revival, Gothic and Plantation Plain style homes and historic sites significant to Cuthbert’s history.

Enjoy a weekend of touring historic private homes, dining at exquisite historic sites—including the home of the president of Andrew College—and discovering the southern charm and hospitality in these towns.

Heritage Reception

Upper-level Georgia Trust members ($250 and up) will enjoy a private reception at Fendall Hall, one of Alabama’s most outstanding examples of Italianate architecture. The exterior of the house remains mostly unchanged from the black and white Italian marble entrance hall to the crowning cupola. The interior is restored to reflect the 1880-1916 time period. Striking features include the elaborate wall and ceiling murals in the entrance hall, parlor, and dining room.

What are Rambles?

Rambles feature exclusive tours and social events in historic properties not usually open to the public. Tours of historic homes and buildings are self-guided, and guests provide their own transportation. Maps and programs are provided at packet pick-up. Catered meals are offered as part of registration packages; however, there are tour-only (no meals) options as well.

These trips attract hundreds of participants per Ramble and are offered two weekends each year (fall and spring). Recent Rambles have included Marietta, the Golden Isles, Athens and Americus.
