Archer Reviews

2 reviews
I have lived here sense I was 6 years old, I am now 33. I love this small town. It is home for me and I am raising my 3 children here now. They go to the same schools I attended, have some of the same teachers I had. My children get to grow up with the children of those I grew up with. There are always flaws in every town but with out a doubt the good out weighs the bad in Archer!
