Lowndes Interpretive Center

This NPS site is dedicated to those who peacefully marched 54 miles from Selma to the state’s capitol in Montgomery in order to gain the right to vote. This significant contribution to the trail serves as a reservoir of information for the plethora of unfortunate, yet significant events that occurred in Lowndes County during the march. The museum exhibits interpret various events, including the confrontation of seminarian Jonathan Daniels; the slaying of Viola Liuzzo, a white woman who assisted the marchers by transporting them to Selma; and the establishment of “Tent City,” the temporary dwelling comprised of tents, cots, heaters, food, and water that benefited families dislodged by white landowners in Lowndes County. The $10 million structure was made possible through collaborative efforts between the National Park Service, the Federal Highway Administration and the Alabama Department of Transportation.
