Selma Museum Announces Saturday Event

The Selma Historical Museum’s next monthly event takes place this Saturday, August 26th. It will be a special and personal presentation on Lady Nancy Astor and Sir Winston Churchill.

“Sir Winston Churchill, leader of Great Britain during World War II cut a wide path across the 20th century”, says Eric Jackson the event presenter. “Lady Astor also was a figure of the 20th century but she is less well known. This program will give insight into their very unique relationship.”

The event begins at 11:00AM and  takes place at the Museum located at 104 West Anderson Street in Uptown Selma.

Jackson, the program presenter has a personal connection to Lady Astor and her family.

“In the early part of the 20th Century several of my family members worked for Lady Astor’ father Col. Chiswell D. Langhorne of Miridor, Albemarle County Virginia and other family members worked for neighbors of the Langhorne family.”

August 26th will be a busy day in Uptown Selma. In addition to the Museum program at 11:00AM there will be a dinner at the Historic Union Depot at 6:00PM. Tickets for the dinner are $13 per person.
