Windsor County Reviews

1 review
I love Springfield, it is a great small town and there is a great sense of community and belonging here. The bad thing about Springfield is in recent years drug activity has picked up, mainly the heroin industry. There have been several drug-related shootings in our small town over the past couple of years. Although these shootings have been terrifying and deadly, they have strengthened our town, and we have started to fight back against the drug trades. Springfield is filled with friendly faces and a great place to live.
