About Selma, North Carolina

In the heart of North Carolina lies the small town of Selma, with a population of about 7,000 people in just over three square miles of land. It is located on the North Carolina Coastal Plains and is filled with rich farmland. The town is included in the Raleigh-Cary Metropolitan Statistical Area, which includes almost two million residents. Selma, like its neighbor Smithfield, is part of Johnston County.

The story of Selma begins in 1867, when lots were sold around a recently established North Carolina Railroad station. These purchased lots formed the origins of Selma, which sprang up as a new railroad town. Selma was chartered on February 11, 1873 as an official town. Selma was also a farming town, and one that used the railroad station to transport cotton and naval stores, which are products made from the sap of trees, such as tar and rosin.

Selma still embraces its historical and rural roots. The town maintains Mitchener Station, which is believed to be the oldest surviving train station in North Carolina. It was built in 1855. Selma also renovated a 1924 passenger depot train to receive Amtrak service.

Every year in October, residents and tourists celebrate the annual Selma Railroad Days Festival, which takes place during the first weekend of October. It includes a parade, live entertainment, antique cars and tractors, model train displays, arts and crafts and much more.

Residents of Selma occupy the 27576 zip code.
