History and Hospitality



"History and Hospitality" is a fitting slogan. Selma is the second
oldest city in Alabama, and it traces its history back to DeSoto and Bienville.
Then there's the Civil War to Civil Rights history and a lot in between, including
Selmians who were instrumental in working for women's right to vote.
The town is home to the state's largest, contiguous historic district.
Then there's that famous southern hospitality, PLUS we've got good water!

Ah, beautiful photo! I was going to guess the motto was: Home Of Rambling Round!

Ah gee, I guessed wrong.

About your ex-governor who just was released from jail, I was completely unaware of this story. I think there's going to be some real interesting things to learn about our justice system as we watch this play out.

Nice and freshly painted! Wonder who picked the color?

Funny! Brian at Terrell had a water tower today, too! Nice photo. I like when they put something on watertowers. Atlanta had one painted like a peach, and there's one in Florence, KY that reads, "Florence, Y'all!"

If you get a chance to stop by my blog Sat., I have a great story to share.

That's a nice water tower.
Nicely painted too. I like the 'History and Hospitality' though I don't know much about Selma.
