The Sturdivant Hall is a historic home located in Selma, Alabama. It was built in 1856 for Colonel Edward T. Watts by Thomas Helm Lee. It served as the Colonel?s residence until 1864 when he and his family moved to Texas.

The Sturdivant Hall was then sold off to John McGee Parkman, who became the president of the First National Bank of Selma. Sadly, he got involved in some controversy and he got arrested and imprisoned, where he died in 1867. The house was then sold in an auction in 1870. The Gillman family owned the house from then on until 1957 when they sold it to the City of Selma.

Today, the Sturdivant Hall functions as a historic house museum, named after Robert Daniel Sturdivant who made it possible for the city to afford establishing a museum.
