Nestled in a cozy 1870s house, Selma’s Store is named for Selma Terry, a beloved Greeley Museums’ volunteer who worked tirelessly to make Centennial Village Museum a reality in 1976. The building was a Union Colony rental house owned by Greeley's founder, Nathan Meeker, originally located on property south of 14th Street and 9th Avenue. It was moved to 1015 ½ 10th Street behind the Methodist Church where it stood for many years until it was relocated to Centennial Village and restored as a museum gift shop.
