Circa 1933 Brick Cottage in Selma, AL Under $50K

OHU50K Notes $49,900

The home was actually built shortly before 1933 when the Farris family owned it. I like to imagine Mrs. Farris greeting her guests at the arched front door. I can see her hosting her friends in her cozy living room with its hardwood floors and lovely fireplace. Mrs. Farris’ heels would click-clack on the hardwoods in the kitchen as she prepared ambrosia salad and sweet tea for Mabel and Lorraine. I can hear her warning her guests that she just washed the penny tile in the bathroom, so be careful not to slip. When the summer heat got too much, I am sure she would usher her friends into the screened porch where they would chit chat and laugh together.

Family History

In the early 1930s, Mr. and Mrs T.J. Farris lived in the home. Mrs. Farris was a member of the Women’s Missionary Society, hosting events at her house. It appears a nurse was hired to take care of the ill T.J., and by 1938 he must have passed away as the Mrs. was Mrs. Cecil Kynard by 1938 and was still hosting the missionary society in her home
