Anson is a small town where everybody knows everybody. The schools are small and the people are nice. It is a good place to settle down and live a quiet, peaceful life. It is right next to Abilene, which quite a bit bigger so a short travel for shopping, events, and nightlife.

Its a small quiet town just outside of Abilene, Texas. Not much to do, but the people are friendly and its just a short 15 min drive into town if you need anything.
schools are great, but not where I want to live always
