A Summertime Tradition

Selma’s Ice Cream Parlour is your small-town, old-fashion ice cream shop that takes you back to a simpler time. Tucked away in historic downtown Afton, Selma’s is Minnesota’s oldest ice cream shop, dishing out ice cream since the early 1900s when the shop was established in a building used for ammunition storage during the Civil War. Much has changed over the years, but the tradition of Selma’s remains the same.
