Our mission:  To preserve, protect and restore Selma and Dallas County’s past by supporting educational, entertaining, and constructive methods of displaying, preserving, protecting, and restoring historic structures and locales in and around the Selma and Dallas County area. PRESERVE, PROTECT, RESTORE.

The Historical Society, served by a volunteer board, supports several restoration projects of valuable historic sites so that future generations may enjoy them. These include Kenan’s Grist Mill, with its twice-annual cornmeal grinding, foot-stomping folk festival, the Iron Foundry, recollecting Selma’s early industry producing steam engines and cotton presses, and Tremont School, the city’s first High School. The Society also sponsors the annual Spring Pilgrimage, featuring beautiful homes and churches of Selma’s past.

Your donation helps preserve and promote the unique and special historic beauty of the area for future generations, our children and our grandchildren.

 A nonprofit, the Historical Society was founded 40 years ago and has with its subcommittee Riverfront Market Authority assisted the City with many projects over the years, including historical surveys, signs and maps, national registration for historic places, and funds for repairs of public properties of historical significance.

We are currently working to restore the Tremont School and the second oldest Y in the nation.  Please join us in our efforts to preserve, protect, and restore.
