Back in 1909, this thing was built to be the HQ for The Harmony Club in Selma, Alabama. It was used non stop by the members for gatherings and social events until it was disbanded and turned into the Elks Club in 1930. 30 years later, it was disbanded once again, and had been unused until recently, when industrial designer David Hurlbut found the place and decided to turn it into a family home. The end result is moody, dark, industrial, and flat-out cool. Might be a little rough around the edges for most people to live at this place like this full time, but it sure is fun to take a photo tour of...
