Marion Female Seminary Building

While teaching young women here in 1861, Prussian-born artist Nicola Marschall designed the first national flag of the Confederate States of America, "The Stars and Bars." Adopted by the Confederate States of America on March 4, 1861, it served as the national flag of the Confederacy longer than any other banner. The building later became part of the Perry County school system, and now displays examples and collections of early Perry County life, including paintings and photographs, clothing and textiles, items from local mercantile establishments, antique domestic and farm implements, and mementoes from local author Mary Ward Brown. COVID safety-compliant tours are available by appointment. Call 334-292-0319, donations are welcome.
