It's A Day at ABC Wednesday, and one of the first exhibits you'll notice
at The Old Depot Museum is the ANVIL out front.
According to the inscription, the anvil was used in Selma's Confederate Arsenal
to make armament for the southern forces. In 1866, the Selma, Rome
and Dalton Railroad purchased the anvil from the scrap pile,
and it was used in the railroad blacksmith shop until 1936.
in 1961, Southern Railway presented the anvil to the Sturdivant Museum Association,
and now it sits in front of the Old Depot.
