Alleman Reviews

This likely the tiniest town I have ever been in. I have lived here my entire life, I have never felt unsafe, however I know that people who did not grow up here don't always feel the same as there are about 3 street lights total. Once the new schools were built, the town became more open to outsiders, and now feels less like a "one horse town".

I absolutely love this little town. Its only 5 minutes away from grocery stores, gas stations, and shops! Couldn't ask for a better school system!
