This is Everything a Southern Porch Should Be
by Meghan White.
Ah, that sweet, old fashioned charm of yesteryear. No where is it more apparent than in the beautiful old homes found throughout the American South. Join Meghan as she shares her favorite Southern real estate finds.
Eufaula, Alabama is an extraordinarily charming Southern small town that sits on the Chattahoochee River on the border of Georgia and Alabama (and hey—you should move there!). The town’s main street sees a lot of traffic from those traveling down to the Florida beaches in the Panhandle such as Seaside and Destin. This commuter traffic, though, has yet to put a damper on the Southern beauty and small-town feel Eufaula continues to offer, with its oak-lined streets and numerous historic homes.
This c. 1872 frame house sits in the center of Eufaula. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, its antique character has been well-preserved—note the original pine floors, tall windows overlooking the front porch and gingerbread detailing as far as the eye can see. Its front porch looks so inviting—wouldn’t it be a perfect place to sit on some rocking chairs, sipping lemonade, and watching the world go by?

Meghan is from the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. She studied history and art history at Elon University in North Carolina before moving to Charleston, South Carolina to earn her Master of Science in Historic Preservation from Clemson University & College of Charleston’s joint graduate program. She loves living in a city where tangible history is everywhere. Charleston is also the first city in which she can claim a historic property home—she currently lives in a converted stable and carriage house from the early nineteenth century. When not battling the humidity and palmetto bugs, she works at the Aiken Rhett House, a historic house museum with a “preserve as found” philosophy. Meghan is enthusiastic about advocating for the architectural and historical importance of auxiliary structures after uncovering the likely original appearance of George Washington’s horse stable at Mount Vernon through an internship and her Master’s thesis. She hopes one day to own a Queen Anne fixer-upper where she can live her days reading in its turret.
