Blackduck Reviews

2 reviews
Blackduck community is great. The people get along, and help each other with many things. The good thing about this community is that it is small, everyone knows each other. The only problem is that there isn't many things that go on in this town, so it's always dead and theres not a lot of people out and about.
Review Blackduck
Blackduck is a great small community. I grew up here and was well supported by both the school and the community. In fact, I loved it so much that I returned to be a teacher at my old high school. Sadly, the town is struggling as there are not many jobs in town. Some people live here as a bedroom community for Bemidji, MN. I would love to see more businesses move into town to help the town grow, but I know it is tough in such a small community.
