Red River County Reviews

The only time houses are actually for sale is when the elderly pass or somebody actually leaves, which doesn't happen often. There are many abandoned houses and buildings that make the town look trashy. The best area to live in would be 8th Street and up.

Everybody knows everybody. Over half the town is related to each other. Most parents let their kids play outside and walk to the store by themselves that is how much they trust their surroundings.
I am counting down the days until I get to leave. I love my home but as for the rest of the town it has nothing to offer. The school system is terrible and there aren't many places of employment.
