Working in Barre
Barre is a rather small town, however it has a vibrant community and has many activities which the community attends. There is only a handful of good dining options and entertainment, however. I find that, overall, the people and atmosphere are very pleasant and I view it as a rather tight knit community.
It's true that crime is going up a bit, but so are the new openings of awesome shops and restaurants. The people are mostly great, and they genuinely care about making it a great, family oriented town. The food is amazing for such a small place, and new restaurants are opening up shops here more and more frequently. As long as you don't rent from one (of the many) slumlords, this is a great place to raise a family.
Barre area is a beautiful area. It is a great place to raise your kids. It is half way from Burlington, or West Lebanon.
