Local Reviews

I like all of the above are near by. All of these stores are in walking distance.This is all very convenient for me.

It is unique because it has a cool vintage downtown. It was the center of the industrial revolution. My favorite local business is Espresso. It's a pizza place with sweet sauce. I like going to the library with friends to use the computers and relax.

I do like that there is a diverse communit love that there is some restaurants in the area.fees like it would only get better in the future.. re

Top donuts down the street not far from breakfast caffe. There also a pizza place across from a laundromat

I like to run with my wife at night, the environment is ok, and some neighbors joined us. Everyone is very satisfied.

All the neighbors are older than me. There are walking trails nearby. A recreation park next door a farmer has fields down the road
