Cummington Reviews

1 review
A little town but a great community. I used to go to elementary school here and it was great. The teachers were like my parents to me because of how small the classes were. There was always about 15-20 kids in my grade. The whole community pretty much knows each other well. Every summer there's a fair that's a lot of fun that a lot of the locals go to.
