The Sturdivant Hall is a historic home built for Colonel Edward T. Watts. Constructed between 1852 and 1856, the house has a modest area of 1 acre (0.40 hectare). The building remains a classic example of the Greek Revival style and is considered to be one of the finest antebellum houses in Southeastern United States. The house now operates as a museum and is open to public for tours. The magnificent facility is also available on rent for weddings, receptions, luncheons and special occasions.
Running for over a century, the Joseph T. Smitherman Historic Building has served multiple functions. It features the Vaughan-Smitherman Museum that depicts the history of the city of Selma.

The third floor restores a vintage hospital and the varied departments of the hospital are interesting. The building is available for rent and is ideal for weddings and social events.
