Vaughan-Smitherman Museum

The Vaughan-Smitherman Museum has served many purposes since 1847 ... Confederate hospital, county courthouse, Presbyterian school and modern-day Vaughan Hospital. Named for former Selma Mayor Joe Smitherman, today it houses treasures such as exquisite furniture from the Wilby Theatre, Civil War munitions that were manufactured in Selma, hospital memorabilia, military uniforms and railroad exhibits. The building and grounds are often used for weddings, receptions and civic meetings.
