Description:


This bathhouse was originally a single-story structure, but now has two levels. It is a rectangular (55′ x 25′) building constructed of uncut native stone of auburn and buff colors in masonry of random rubble. The roof is gabled. Shutters were installed on the first floor windows. The entrance to the bathhouse is arched. The entrance to the pool is square. The tent-like structure attached to one corner and the archway give the bathhouse a Richardson Romanesque flavor. The alterations impeach the integrity of the structure. The pool measures 99 feet on the longer sides and is constructed of concrete which was later painted blue.
Construction of this bathhouse gave destitute workers on relief some type of economic security and enabled them to make money for their families. Completion of the structure enhanced recreational opportunities in Eufaula. The building is totally unique because of the tent on the corner as well as in terms of type, style, materials, and workmanship.[1]
