Pilgrimage Presents Gillman Hall
Selma is about to open its Historic Treasure Chest for the 34th year in a row!
Pilgrimage is just a month away, and among the homes on tour this year is Gillman Hall, a Greek Revival Italianate built in 1860.
Constructed with brick, the exterior is finished with stucco, and the front porch posts are made of iron.
The home was purchased by Emile Gillman in 1874, and his family owned it until 1939 when it was purchased by Dr. Sam Moseley Sr. The Gillman family also owned Sturdivant Hall for 60 years.
This house was purchased again in 2008 and has been beautifully restored, and visitors will enjoy seeing its many period antiques.
