    Berne Township Reviews

    Lancaster, Ohio is a very quiet city with very little to do when it comes to entertainment. Although I loved living here my whole childhood, I plan moving away when I start my career.
    Review Berne Township
    The crime rate in Lancaster, Ohio is probably the one of the lowest in the State. Never once, in my eighteen years of living here, have I been concerned with my safety.
    My review is that there is quite a bit to do in Lancaster and coming from a small town is nice, but some things are changing for the worse.
