I love the smallness of this community . Where everyone knows everyone and they are willing to go out of their way for anyone that may need help. I absolutely love the fact that we are located between three absolutely gorgeous lakes and we have one main river that we take extreme pride in. I love the fact that this is a town where people come to retire as well as raise their children. There is a calmness about this town you can feel it even once you reach the countyline on any main express way. One thing I would change would be to ban alcohol sales and consumption within this town. I would make its dry county . But I honestly would do that any where if I was given a chance.
Small town with an even smaller mentality. Unfortunately, it is a town that will never evolve. However, Roscommon county has two beautiful lakes that offers activities year round. Restaurants and good food are limited, but the beer is cheap and the pizza is tasty!
