Drewry-Mitchell-Moorer House, Eufaula

Eufaula, AL – Happy Friday!  Today we are sharing another great old mansion across the state line in Eufaula, AL.  The Drewry-Mitchell-Moorer House was built in 1867 for Dr. John Drewry.  Drewry, originally from Georgia, built this mansion just after the Civil War.

As soon as I walked by the house, I was just taken with the details – this Italianate home features 12 ft windows!

Dr. Drewry was a noted physician, achieving a reputation for treating typhoid fever, a lingering problem in the 19th century.  Like many doctors, he also owned an apothecary.

The home stayed in the family for 3 generations, until the 1970s.  I found a photo from the NRHP, taken in the early 1970s.  Note the closed shutters on the front.
