Barron is a quiet little town in the middle of northern Wisconsin. Not much happens here. It's nice if you like boring places. Barron would greatly benefit from a coffee shop or any other place teens can hang out.
This is a nice town to work and live in. They do need to have more things for the kids to do. Jobs are a little scarce but there are jobs in towns that are fairly close to Barron. It is a very friendly town and a farm community.
