My experience in Selby South Dakota, was shorter than most people who have lived here. I moved here when I was starting my Sophomore year of high school, when I got here, everyone was nice and supportive of me, the newcomer.

Love this little town. The people are friendly. The town is kept clean. It is a small town and small community where everyone looks out for one another.
