I lived there for years. The town is beautiful, has a fantastic police and fire force. Has a post office and library, and a wonderful elementary school with caring and loyal teachers. The perfect place to live if you want to have a community and a home.

The only general store in town recently shut down, the center of town is ghostly. The local businesses i would presume are farm stands which are okay
There are so few businesses that it is nearly impossible to find employment and if you do find a place that's hiring it wants someone with plenty of experience.
