(April 2010) Enlarge Mabry-Jones Home



(April 2010) Enlarge Mabry-Jones Home: This historic antebellum home was built by Dr. A.G. Mabry, one of Selma's leading citizens and one of the founders of the Alabama Medical Association. The house was built in three sections, each at a different time and is Greek Revival in style. The stepdaughter of Dr. Mabry married Captain Catesby R. Jones, a Confederate Naval Officer who was sent to Selma to take charge of the foundry. (At that time, Selma was the second most important munitions center in the Confederacy.) Captain Jones was one of the designers of the ironclad known as the Merrimac (so named after the Confederate ship Virginia was covered with iron). He was also the Commander of the Merrimac during the battle of the Merrimac and the Monitor. You will see large carriage stones and hitching posts in front of many historic houses in Selma. Most are original to the home, like the one seen here in front of the Mabry home. Descendents of the Jones family still occupy this house
