Selma Interpretive Center

 is housed in this renovated 1880 building on the corner of Broad Street and Water Avenue.
 
Formerly People's Bank & Trust, the structure's Italianate style
 is demonstrated by the arched windows and curved corner.
 Originally, it also had a two-story, wraparound cast-iron gallery. 
 
After housing numerous businesses including a hardware store,
 law offices and insurance offices, boards were removed 
from the windows in  2010 for its renovation as the regional
 civil rights visitor center operated by the National Park Service.

It is so interesting to learn that the NP Service runs this historical center in this building!

The curved "corner" is its most striking feature.
