Dudley Reviews

Across the street there is a corn field. Occasionally escaped cows will wander around the neighborhood. A five minute drive up the street will lead you into farm country. The most beautiful sunset can be found up by Dresser Hill Farm. A sense of how things were before big housing communities came in still exist. The side of Dudley I live on is a preserved moment in time. It is home, the sense of security and happiness couldn't be greater. I would like to see this way of living stay here. I would like to see no change on this side of town. The other side is being influenced by a small city. Over crowded living, pavement and concrete have taken up the beautiful farm land. If things could go backwards one hundred years. Only if it could.

Great, small community. Schools and teacher are all excellent and care about student success. All small businesses--everywhere you go you feel like you are truly helping out a fellow resident. Would like to see a bigger playground or a park for kids besides the one by the Town Hall.
Wonderfully quaint little town, great for families. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Quality public education.
