Clay County Reviews

Carmel Clay, IN, is a family oriented town with lots of cultural activities, social events, arts fostering events, sports clubs, and a great educational system. The town does a good job keeping on its infrasctructure (road pavement, buildings, snow removal, etc.). Real Estate is not cheap, but services are reasonable.
