Record #:
Selma in Johnston County once had a thriving retail center, but its downtown businesses were lured away by strip malls on highways and interstates. Attempts at revitalizing failed because no one wanted to be in downtown Selma. Then in 1997, town manager Bruce Radford found the key to filling the old buildings - antiques. Today Selma is a popular antiques destination, and the dying downtown has come back to life.
