    Crook County Reviews

    upon driving into a little city called Prineville, it could look like a total bore. After spending a couple nights in the city I realized this is going to be a wonderful place to live. There is a clock tower that sparks my imagination and gets me thinking that i'm in a fairytale town. It's beautiful at night and lights up the residential neighborhood with it's glow. The library is similar with it's clock tower and the streets tell a story that there is more than meets the eye to this town. But what is most awesome is the wonderful people I've met from an elderly man that owns a business where he makes all his boots from scratch to a wild and fun team of dart players that meets regularly at the ELKs club.
