Crime & Safety
This town has a friendly atmosphere. It is welcoming to young families and is an up and coming area for development. Located right on Interstate 70, you have easy access to Dayton, OH and Richmond, IN for entertainment as well as a wonderful bike trail that connects you to most of the Miami Valley. This little town will quickly become home to anyone who resides here.
This is a small community so there is a lot of community support. Very good school system. Could use a little more diversity in the area. Could use a little wider college readiness and ACT preparation for their students. The area is not as acceptable as it should be, in my opinion, to new, out of town residence because of the numerous multiple generations. Overall, it is a safe, area to live in and yes I would consider living here again.
I've moved around a whole lot. But even with so many places to compare it to, Brookville is my all-time favorite. It's pretty safe, quiet, and has pretty good schools. And the people here are much nicer than ones I've met elsewhere. If I stayed in the States, I can honestly say I may move back here after college. The weather is typical Ohio weather, it changes everyday, sometimes hourly.
