A small, quaint town in the center of farm country, Berwick is a great place for those looking to settle into a quiet place for retirement. It isn't extravagant or wealthy by any stretch of the imagination, and sure it has its fair share of problems, but what town doesn't? The people are honest, hard-working, genuine, with a strong love for their community that creates a deep bond between those that live here. It's a simple lifestyle, but it's home and there's no place like it!
Berwick is a quaint little town. Largely Italian or Ukrainian genealogy. Church and community are very important. It is the type of place where people know and help their neighbors. Recently, we have had a terrible influx of drugs. However, for a small police department they do a wonderful job of keeping the situation as controlled as possible. All the fire stations are volunteer which is a prime example of the people who reside here taking care of each other.
In the town of Berwick, crime is not much of an issue but drugs are. There are numerous amounts of houses that have caught on fire caused from meth labs and drug dealers. There is a high rate of drug users in this area. I see someone everyday at my job that comes in high off of some type of drug. Violence is not a problem as much as drug use in this town.
