Welcoming Alabama Riverside Cottage

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the cottage has witnessed more than a century of history—both inside and out—including the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery Voting Rights March. Drs. Anne and Allan Strand initially experienced the riverside cottage as a bed-and-breakfast where they would stay when visiting family in Selma. At the urging of their children and grandchildren, they ultimately decided to move to the historic Southern city and purchase the riverside cottage in 2013. “The location was extraordinary,” Anne says, noting that as they began the process of renovation and remodeling it became “a dream home for our family at this time in our lives.”
