I've absolutely loved living here my entire life. I want my children to grow up here. The people are friendly, and the school systems are amazing! Simply the best little town to live in.
Review Buhl
The services are good here, in regards to police, fire, and EMS. The county services such as power and gas are great as well, really helpful and prompt. I'm not familiar with the local governing authorities.
We love living in Buhl. The only downside is the high cost of our water bill. Buhl is a great small town to raise a family in. It has a true small town USA feeling.
