Introduction to Eufaula, Alabama

Eufaula History

Eufaula was originally inhabited by three Creek Indian tribes. In fact, the city was named Eufaulas after one of the tribes. It was first settled by the whites in 1823. For awhile it was known as the city of Irwinton after General William Irwin, who promoted the area's development. Later in 1843, it was renamed Eufaula because mail was continuously directed to Irwinton, Georgia, by mistake. The Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge was created in 1964.
