Beecher Reviews

15 reviews
All Categories
The town gives off a plain atmosphere. There aren't too many things to do in a small town like this, and since everybody knows everybody, there aren't too many problems that arise like crime. Compared to the rest of the country, this is just another small country town with nothing to do.
Review Beecher
The prevalence of crime in this area is pretty low. There are occasional fights happening every now and then but never anything serious. The police overall do pretty well in maintaining the peace.
There are the basic necessities in this area but not a big variety to choose from so if the one store does not have what you are looking for, you must go to another town.
