American Township Reviews

16 reviews
All Categories
There have been recent reports of shootings and burglaries in 2016 already. For example, one concern here is that we have recently had sightings of strange men posing as salesmen to scope out houses with home owners that are away, and less than a week ago there was a fatal shooting. Drugs are also fairly common, even among high school students.
Review American Township
If given the option, I would live somewhere else. Lima has a limited selection of businesses available. For example, there is no Target, and only one mall, which isn't very big, and has recently lost about five stores with the past years.
The restaurants are pretty good. Great tasting food, for a fair price with good customer service.
