Marion is where Jimmie Lee Jackson was killed by a state trooper which led to the Bloody Sunday march from Selma to Montgomery. There's a historical marker on site that explains this part of civil rights history.
This old building is simply beautiful. Located on an ol southern square in the small town of Marion, Alabama, a simple drive around will make you want to move here! This town if full of old southern houses, a few of them for sale (cheap!!). It all makes this place tempting.
