Depending on what side of town you are on, the housing here is great. It is very attractive and looks well-kept. The houses by the airport are newer and more up to date. Some of the houses in town are dated and are fixer-uppers, but that adds some character.
Review Benton Township
I've never had to have the police so I'm not sure how responsive they are but I do find them driving around town often. I feel safe.
This town is a small town and that's why I like it. The people are nice and they know your name which gives me a sense of community.
