    Bergen Reviews

    4 reviews
    All Categories
    The village is pretty close together but each house has a yard. Outside the village, the houses have a good block or more between them and a minimum of an acre lot. Most of these lots come with a sizable amount of land.
    Review Bergen
    Bergen has a lot of open land that is available to build on. The school district remains to be one of the best when compared to the other schools in it's sports district in both academics and athletics.
    There honestly are not too many incidents that require police action.
