The PEW House
Welcome to church!
Well, this is a residence, but a Lutheran congregation used to worship in the reception hall (background) and the living room (foreground) until its members built a church in west Selma.
The PEW House (notice the church pew in front of the window) is on tour this afternoon during the Selma Pilgrimage. The early 1900's Victorian is also the former home of Dr. Walter Ellwanger, who became president of Alabama Lutheran (now Concordia College) in1945. During the tour from 1-5 p.m., visitors will learn about some of the home's famous guests and see collections of international nativity sets, plus much more!
