    Quiet town. Very family friendly. They are currently tearing down the old tannery and plan to build more a downtown in years to come. We are excited to see what Berwick can become!
    Review Berwick
    The town needs industry to bring down property taxes. There are many private roads which the town/state does not maintain. The maintenance, including snow removal, is at the expense of the homeowner. There are many impoverished neighborhoods in rural areas.
    Police are trying but the town administration continues to focus development on low income, rental housing and it has brought in a flood of drug and domestic violence. Not sure how to fix it at this point.
