Old Depot Museum: Located a block down Water Avenue from the St. James Hotel is the Old Depot Museum which is located on the grounds of the former Confederate Foundry area. The Old Depot Museum is an interpretive museum that houses momentos of the men and women who helped make Selma the 'Queen City of the Black belt'. A tour of the Old Depot Museum runs the gamut from Civil War to Civil Rights. This area was the site of the Greater Confederate National Ordnance Works, the Civil War foundry in operation from 1860 until 1865, where the Brooke Cannon was manufactured. It took Wilson's Raiders several days to totally destroy the manufacturing stronghold between the Confederate Foundry and the Arsenal Place.
