Henry County Reviews

1 review
Everyone is friendly. The area is nice and not trashy. People will stop and help you out. The schools get better every year. The teacher get you ready for the world and college. The area is a farming community so it’s mosh fields. It is very safe. Little happens around here and if it does it’s not too dangerous. It’s a really great area.
