Allegany Reviews

All Categories
If someone is interested in going shopping, as in retail, there is not much in the way of a mall. We do have a lot of chain fast food places and department stores, but nothing too up scale. There are few mom and pop shops left but the ones still standing are quite nice.
Review Allegany
Its a small little town but a great place to grow up. I love living in Allegany its such a close community and a really nice place to live.
Volunteer fire department in Allegany is very efficient.
