East Sparta Reviews

I have lived in East Sparta, Ohio for over 10 years. Overall, I appreciate that my kids have been able to grow up in a small town. It's like a modern day Cheers! Literally. I am grateful that my kids have experienced life in this manner, you seem to appreciate the small things in life much more. So when they do move on into the great big world outside of East Sparta, Ohio they will know a good thing when they see it. :)

East Sparta is a great small town where everyone knows everyone, complete with the town store, barbershop and post office.
Being a very small town we don't have as many opportunities as other and it sometimes seems we are very behind compared to other.
