Birnamwood Reviews

1 review
Birnamwood is not a place I like to call home. The neighbors are trashy and don't take proper care of their pets. They also don't take responsibility for keeping their sidewalks clean so walking on the sidewalks is near impossible. The town board is slow to resolve any issues, even more serious ones. Being a small rural town, one would assume that it's safe. However, we've been on lock-down for a gunman threat, I've had a drug dealer chased down in my back yard, and there was a threat given by my neighbor directed towards the school. The few good things about this town is that it has a clinic, a public school, and a place to get food and drinks.
