Selsertown was the second stop on the
original Natchez Trace. It was located on the Adams-Jefferson county line, about 1 mile from Emerald Mound which was known then as Selsertown Mound. On the Original Natchez Trace, there was a law that every 6 miles or so there must be an inn or tavern built. Prices charged were regulated by law and tavern keepers were under bond. George Selser established an inn there which was later in the possession of John McCullum. The inn was operated there from 1800 until it was burned to the ground during the Civil War. Nothing remains today of what was once a thriving village.
