Avella Reviews

2 reviews
Since I was born, I have lived in Avella. This small town has been my family's home for generations. I like Avella because it is a tight knit community and everyone knows everyone. One of the downsides of living in Avella is that the nearest grocery store is about thirty minutes away. This town is not for you if you do not like cow manure, getting gas at Unimart, or driving on backroads.
Review Avella
Avella is a beautiful rural town located just outside of Washington, Pa. It's a small town surrounded by rolling hills and family farms. It's a tight knit community and a wonderful place to raise children.
