Clay City Township Reviews

1 review
The area I live in is largely agricultural crop farming. It's is a very rural, small town, typical Midwest area where the high school boys drive big trucks and everyone either farms, works in the school, is in the medical field or works in one of the many mom and pop type shops. It's is a great life to raise kids in, but access to services and retail is lacking. Major hospitals and shopping areas are a two hour drive away. Would I live here again? Sure! But would I like to see growth in the area? Of course!
