It's a small town where everyone knows everybody. Regulars come to high school sporting events, during the summer The Cannons baseball team plays, and we have the cutest down town area. Something I would like to see changed is just making it look better. We have areas where buildings have been taken down and in replace of it is a vacant lot. This doesn't look good, so I think the town should do something about it.

Augusta, KS, is a small town in the middle of Kansas. Overall, Augusta is not diverse and has little to offer. However, with close proximity to Wichita, job opportunities are expanded. In addition, affordability is a plus.
There aren't many things in Augusta that can be rated well. The people are generally rude and racist, and the school system and the administrators are terrible. I've lived here for over 15 years and would never suggest that anyone move here. People are not welcoming.
