Live Oak Cemetery, Selma, Alabama

Live Oak Cemetery in Selma, Alabama, is huge and ancient.  It is more than a cemetery; it is a history lesson, a museum full of art.

A soul could spend the day here and not be able read all the epitaphs and dates and endearments carved in marble.

Selma has several museums, old Victorian houses downtown, and the Edmund Pettus bridge made famous in 1965 by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights movement.  Lots to do there if you go, but don't miss Live Oak Cemetery.
