SPRING PILGRIMAGE IN SELMA. The very words conjure up images of flowering beauty and historic homes dating back to the early 1800’s. We invite you to come and experience history from the Civil War to Civil Rights as you tour private homes, museums, gardens and much more. You’ll be enchanted with Selma’s special blend of Southern graces and historic places and the largest historic district in Alabama.
Tourists from throughout the state, and the world at large, are fascinated with the diverse history and architecture found in Selma, and you will be too. Our Pilgrimage encompasses antebellum houses and industry, Victorian cottages, museums, and a with accompanying stories guaranteed to enthrall visiting pilgrims. Selma was burned in 1865 by Wilson’s Raiders and our surviving antebellum homes are cherished and waiting to be admired and shared during Pilgrimage.
Selma’s Pilgrimage draws visitors from near and far to experience its diverse history and architecture. Angie Detoro is among those who attends almost every year. She has come to the Selma Pilgrimage for the past 10 years. “I drive from Colorado to Tennessee to pick up my mom and sister, then continue the drive to Alabama. We love the beautiful architectural history of Selma. We appreciate the efforts of the Selma Pilgrimage Committee who make this possible, as well as the countless volunteers we have met over the years and the individuals who so graciously open their lovely homes for the tour. We look forward to attending this year,” she said.
