Selma was built around 1815 by Armistead Thomson Mason. Only 4 years later, Mason was killed in a duel by his own cousin over a political quarrel (glad we deal with arguments a little differently today!) and his son inherited the property. Many years later in the 1890s, a large portion was destroyed in a fire. In 1896, Elijah B. White purchased the property, determined to restore it to grandeur. He enlisted the Richmond architectural firm of Noland and Baskervill to design a Colonial Revival mansion, and in 1902, the current Selma mansion was completed, including a kitchen wing built from a small portion of the original home that had been spared by the fire.
Reportedly haunted by members of the various families who lived and died here throughout the ages, there are several reports of disembodied voices, strange noises and various poltergeist-type activities associated with Selma Mansion.
