Crime & Safety
Ault is a small rural agricultural community focused on traditional American values. The town revolves around the high school. Friday nights when the lights turn on and the football players go out on the field people that graduated even 10 years ago fill the stands. It's a small town you can't forget, the restaurants are very homey. Everyone knows everyone so we all stop in and have long friendly conversations. The amount of antique shops would shock you for our small town, high school kids go in and buy old movies to watch on the weekends. Our park (Liberty Park) is the place for every town event. Concerts that the church puts on and Ault Days are the highlight of the summer.
Ault is a small town, unfortunately gossip tends to fly around if you participate in town events, but that happens when people are bored. Overall, it is a nice town to live in and walk around. It is safe, low crime and it has most of the amenities needed. Except a grocery store, we use to have Johnson's, but they had to close shop, now it is a church.
I have grown up in a close-knit, small community that supports one another. Everywhere I go, there is somebody that I know well, and I appreciate having so many relationships and people to rely on in my town. If I were to change something, I would simply want to better the education and maybe open a bigger variety of shops in Ault, Colorado.
