It is a small town, with an even smaller school. It is a pretty safe place to live and we have a state historic site called Bryant cottage.
Review Bement
There aren't too many problems with crime and safety overall. When there is, the police take care of it.
The town is small but has many things for kids to do and stay entertained. Since it is small great friendships are formed between kids and families.
