I have lived around this town most of my life. People are nice and it’s still has that small town feel!

I like the small town environment very much. However, I wish some things were closer. The closest grocery store is several miles away. However, there are many local farms that sell produce.
It's a small town with very few options for activities but has been improving recently. I enjoy the local park when the weather allows, and the county courthouse is a historic landmark that has an intersting history.
