Local Reviews

The rent is reasonable and the apartment has central heat and air. We don't have to mow the lawns or shovel snow. There's a ceiling fan in the bedroom.

Caparha park is the towns major park its ok needs to be updated and stuff but has everything u would need

I like that everyone pretty much knows each other either personally or members of your family. that's about it

I think the fact that all our neighbors are close and friendly is unique. We are very close to downtown, so it's easy for a night out. However, we're also very close to the other side of town to, so it's a good medium

There is sidewalks in front of the house. People are always walking. Everyone speaks to each other. Love my small town.

Nothing really happens here, so I don't have to pay attention to anything. Most of the time it's pretty quiet, especially at night.
