A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Selma ...
Although we found mention of Selma during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Selma was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Selma was located in Osborne County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Selma to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Selma - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Selma, please Contact Us.
When the people of Selma refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Selmian<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Selma might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Selma would be found within the (785) area code.
