    Blanchester Reviews

    What I liked about growing up in Blanchester was that it was a friendly town. No matter who you are or where you are from everyone is always available to lend a hand. It is a very small community, yet a very family oriented community. The only thing about the small town of Blanchester is that it is not very diverse.
    Review Blanchester
    Don't move here. Bad schools, there are a lot of racist people here, no one here will ever make something of their lives, trailer-trash ,scum. Also, the whole town is dying.
    People here are all the same. Very religious and lack of diversity. Typical small town. I hated it here and couldn't wait to leave for college. I do not like coming home for break.
