If you like a small town, then Castlewood is definitely a great place to go! It is only fifteen minutes away from Watertown, which means that pretty much everything you'd need is only a short distance away. Also, the people are extremely friendly and tend to wave whenever they drive by.

I was raised in Castlewood. I attended both elementary and high school here. It is a loving, close nit town, where everything you need is just down the street.
