Welcome to the Cato-Thorne House website. We hope that you will enjoy the information presented here. We have attempted to present historic information and pictures as well as a few recent pictures. If you have information about the house or the Cato family, please let us know so we can update the information on this site.
"Built in 1858 by Lewis Llewellen Cato on land purchased from the Creek Indians, this Greek Revival structure is one of Eufaula's most historic homes. The cupola is a miniature replica of the house. This home is on the National Register of Historic Places." ~ Eufaula (AL) Pilgrimage Tour of Homes Brochure
The Cato-Thorne House hosted the Annual Wine and Cheese Tasting during the 2009 Eufaula Pilgrimage and we are excited to be hosting the Annual Wine and Cheese Tasting again during the 2010 Pilgrimage. Please join us in our home-tickets are available through the Eufaula Heritiage Association.
On November 12th we hosted a fundraiser for the local United Way.
Gary Smith has written a book about the renovation of this historic home that he did in the late 1990's. If you are interested in the renovation of the Cato House or information about renovating your own historic home, you can order the book HERE.
Below are pictures of the owners with the Pilgrimage Court and the boy scouts from the Civil War reenactment (including David).
