Like most things in Selma, you come here for the history - lots to learn about time through the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement - worth seeing.

The Old Depot Museum has little to do with trains although their is an old caboose in the backyard. There are many pictures and artifacts over a hundred years old displayed around the museum.
