Selma’s Ice Cream Parlour (Afton)

Selma’s has been an attraction—for locals and tourists alike—since the early 1900s, when the ice cream parlour was established in an existing nineteenth-century wooden clapboard building. In recent years, the property changed hands several times. The most recent venture went broke, and Selma’s entered foreclosure and was purchased by CorTrust Bank in 2010. The building is for sale (asking price $299,000), but for now stands vacant, prone to annual flooding and subject to site regulation by the Department of Natural Resources and zoning and construction oversight by the city. The Afton Heritage Preservation Commission would like to see the building preserved, but any future owner will have to live up to a significant legacy—which may take more than destination-worthy ice cream.
