I have lived in Brazil, Indiana all of my life. It is a small town with a few locally owned businesses and many run down buildings and houses. Recently the town has been working to restore many of the commercial buildings to their former glory and there are a few people in town working on fixing some of the houses that were left destroyed and vancant. The elementary schools are pretty good schools, while the middle school and high school need some work. It takes around thirty minutes to get to Terre Haute and an hour to get to Indianapolis. The town has very little diversity when comes to race. The people that live here mostly work blue collar jobs. The biggest employer in Brazil is Great Dane Trailers, but many travel to Terre Haute for their jobs. We have a hospital in Brazil that is a rural access hospital and have limitations on what they can do there. There are a few public parks and they are trying to get some grants to make the parks better.
Review Brazil
I was born and raised in this little farm town. I love just driving on the back roads; soaking up the beautiful scenery. Brazil is a small town, but is known for numerous things.
Too many drugs. Wish there were more things for kids to do other than hangout in parking lots and drink. I like the low cost of living
