Cedar Township Reviews

All the people in my town are very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely pick this place all over again, because I prefer small towns. I definitely think this is one of the nicest communities in Missouri! I see a lot of growth for New Bloomfield in the future, because more people are moving here and more businesses are coming here. I could see New Bloomfield tripling its population in the near future.

If I could choose to live here again, I would. Only because I love to live in the country. However there is hardly anything to do in this town. You can go to the park to play, run/walk at the track, ride around on back roads, hunt, or go fishing. There are no shopping malls or supermarkets, for those you would have to travel to he next town. However we just got a Doller General this year. The only public place to eat is at our local gas station. We do have a Country Club but you have to be a member to do anything there. We use to have a car wash in town but that closed down a couple years ago. My overall experience living here as been pretty good though. It's a small town community with a small town school.
