The Jordan House Parlor

The light and colors and curves of this exquisite Italianate home are a work 
of architectural art. I just love that the residents have furnished
 it with period antiques, even the chairs and couches,
 and kept its interior simple yet elegant. 
The home was built in 1869 for Gus Jordan (related to the famous Auburn Coach
 Ralph "Shug" Jordan). Coach Jordan grew up in Selma, and locals
 remember him visiting here and playing catch in the yard!
 The home remained in the Jordan family until 1978. 

You can tour this home today from 1-5 p.m. on Selma's Historic Pilgrimage.

What a lovely place to call home. It occurs to me that the Pilgrimage is quite similar to our Doors Open program.
