    Big River Township Reviews

    If I could go back in time and keep my parents from moving me from Arnold to Bonne Terre, would I do it? No, I don't think I would. This town has taught me how to be a decent human being in this world of anger and hatred, it has taught me how to be happy. Bonne Terre is an old mining town and since the mines have been closed for many years now, the business and economics in this town have diminished, leaving this a poor town. However, the people in the community come together to help each other out. I do see myself leaving Bonne Terre eventually but it is only because I am a small town girl who has a ravenous hunger for knowledge and I must see the world.
