SELMA, Ala. — A Town and Country Tour of Homes in the heart of Alabama’s old plantation region opens March 16-17 during the 37th annual Historic Selma Pilgrimage.
This year’s tour features historic homes and sites in Selma and along the Alabama River in nearby Cahawba, Orrville and Molette’s Bend. Guided tours of a once vibrant plantation, a majestic town “castle,” former male academy, movie producer’s Tudor-style estate and much more are available.
“We’re excited to include rural sites along the Alabama and Cahaba rivers in the Morning Tour,” said Pilgrimage Co-Chairman Jewell Williamson of Orrville. “This is the area where Alabama built its first capitol and where cotton was king. Guests will also get a sneak peek inside the restored St. Luke’s Episcopal Church at Old Cahawba Archaeological Park.”
