The Town of Selma is located in the great Coastal Plains of North Carolina. It lies in the richest agricultural sections of America, 30 miles east of Raleigh and 115 miles west of the Atlantic Ocean off of US Hwy 70. Selma developed into a community in an area that had long been settled by prosperous farmers – and some not so prosperous. These settlers had no "Indian problems," no rocky fields to clear – only the great forests that served as a valuable source of revenue for the early colonists here.
