An Abandoned Men's Club is Now A Home - In Selma AL

Toy WagonBut when I read this article about an Atlanta engineer who took a 20,000 sq. ft men's club and turned it into a home...I just had to stop and say...wow!

BY the time David Hurlbut bought the Harmony Club, a 20,000-square-foot building on the waterfront here, it had been abandoned for nearly 40 years. Built in 1909 as a social club by a group of prominent Jewish businessmen, it had been turned into an Elks club in the 1930s; when the Elks disbanded in 1960, the building was boarded up.

Selma is one town in Alabama that I have never been to.  One of these days I need to jump in the car and take a road trip and explore the place.
