Brainard is a very small town of about 350 people. Everybody who lives there is extremely personable and willing to help. The local businesses there all have friendly employees and they all get to know you.
This community is very family and pet friendly. Many people that grew up here and moved away end up coming back to raise their family here.
Sense of safety is the best. Crime almost never happens and when it does, the police are very quick to respond to it.
I would definitely choose to live here again if I could. The people are very kind, the houses are nice, and it's an overall great place to live.
It's a very small village, therefore there are not many businesses in the area. There is a bank, post office, small bar, and a salon. They are pretty well kept.
