A statue of Mary, mother of Jesus, graces a small memorial garden next to the St. Edmund Memorial Chapel. The chapel was built in 1938 by the Edmundite Missions for African American Catholics. When the congregation merged with the white Catholic church in the 1970s, the former church building was converted to a chapel for the Edmundite fathers who live in Selma.
Thanks to Christine Weerts for sending her photograph.
