Carbondale is a very small town but it is quite quaint. Everyone knows each other and everyone is very friendly. We had a small but nice pool that residence takes turns running over the summer. Overall it is a small but friendly town.

Carbondale Kansas is a peaceful and quiet place to live. The town has wonderful residents who are friendly and helpful when you need help. We have a great school with small class sizes to make it easier to have one on one help for students when needed. There is a dollar general store and a 24 hour Casey's as well as grocery store. We also have a brand new swimming pool and a library for the kids in town to visit. It is convenient for the working class as it is only 10 miles south of Topeka Kansas on 75 highway. It's a really quiet place to live and raise a family.
