The description states:

STURDIVANT HOME MUSEUM

Selma, Alabama

Built in 1850 by Col. Edward m. Watts, it remains one of the most classic examples of ante-bellum mansions in existence. It was designed by a cousin of R. E. Lee and furnished with imported French furnishings. It has tall columns in the front and is supported by a cupola. (Many know this as the Gilman Home.)

–The Sturdivant name comes from a major donor to the acquisition of the property, which was for the longest time in the possession of the Gilman family before being acquired as a museum.

This card likely dates from the 1950s.
