Bourbon Reviews

Bourbon is a quiet town, where everyone knows everyone. Generations choose to come back there long after marriage, graduation, etc. Tball, baseball games, there is a good chance you'll see someone you started kindergarten with!
Review Bourbon
Absolutely the best town I've ever lived in! Great people, great schools, and quiet. The only thing I'd like to see change is maybe getting a grocery store like Kroger.
Bourbon is a small rural community literally surrounded by corn and soybean fields. Within our small town, we have a Subway, Family Dollar, and a local pizza chain. With a population under 2,000 everyone knows each other and are relatively welcoming.
