Love this small town! Great people, with a lot of small town shops. The only town fall is you have to drive twenty min to the local Wal-Mart, but having a caring small town, is well worth it. Everyone knows everyone and helps everyone. When my husband had surgery my neighbor came over and helped me mow my lawn.

I have lived in Sedgwick County all of my life. It has always been a homey town that has sprinkles of tradition here an there. Very safe, very great schools and very calm.
