Local Reviews

The neighborhood is unique due to the many 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom homes in the area. Very small homes.

There are parks for kids with good schools. Neighbors are friendly and the town is very clean. People are willing to help each other in a pinch and offer a helping hand.

It's very quaint and the people are down to earth and mostly friendly. (Although somewhat closed off to those they don't know) it's a safe place where folk have each other's backs.

It is a quiet, safe neighborhood. The houses are well maintained and affordable. People maintain their yards.

I know all my neighbors, people look out for each other and you don't have to fear vandalism or break ins.
