What’s Right With Your Community: Annual Selma Historic Pilgrimage
From the West Alabama Newsroom– The annual Selma Historic Pilgrimage showcases the state’s largest historic district.
The annual Selma Historic Pilgrimage is an event that shows off some of the historic buildings that have been preserved in the Selma community.
More than a dozen will be open for public display and some will feature guided tours.
Sturdivant Hall Museum is one of the popular sites on the pilgrimage. Mary Hansell is the museum director.
“We have five young ladies from the high school anywhere from 10th through 12th grade that will come and stand in each of the rooms and they tell the history,” said hansell. “They dress up and enjoy dressing up in the antebellum dresses and really get into the time in that era.”
This year the Historic Selma Pilgrimage is March 20th and 21st.
Some of the revenue generated by the event is used to save and rehab other historic buildings.
