There is nothing terrible about this area, but also nothing that fantastic. Logansport is a very small town with few stores, but it is a close-knit community that I love. I would not have chosen to grow up anywhere else! Logansport is actually growing and expanding, and I see a bright future for this town.

My area is constantly growing and changing but one thing that stays the same is the family environment! The school I graduated from is what makes the town thrive. The community is very enthusiastic about the youth's education and its future educational endeavors. The support in this town is great and it's always refreshing to come home to.
What businesses? There are a few food places and ironically over-priced dollar stores, but very little is here. Recently, though, we got a pizza place.
