Methodist Children’s Home, Selma, Alabama

This image shows the large facility built as a home for orphans and displaced children by the state Methodist church organization. It is no longer in operation as a facility, having closed in 2010, but the building still stands and the Methodist Childrens mission is still active.

The description states:


Selma, Alabama

“A bright spot in many a youngster’s life.”

–The facility closed when there were only 16 children remaining in the large building, and it was decided to place these in other locations and families to allow for better centralized services. At the time of closure it was hoped the facility and grounds could be sold for preservation.

This image likely dates from the 1950s.
