Guernsey County Reviews

I love the fact that guernsey county is nestled in the outskirts of interstate 70 and 77. This ensures easy travels and gives our small county a small town feel. Most of guernsey county is divided into a farming community with a large focus on hay and meat cattle production. The traffic is very light compared to the larger cities of St. Clairesville and Columbus that the county is placed between.

My neighborhood personally isn't too scary to live in, but the places around it are getting worse with crimes and drugs.
Ohio is a great place to raise my children. Education is important to the state of Ohio, and the legislatures try to make appropriate decisions.
