It's a small town, with great people who are always willing to help others. It's amazing seeing what other's do for people while they're in desperate need of assistance. I wish the snow removal team would improve.

If you're looking for a place with a good public school system and not much else Edgerton is the place to be. there's several local family run restaurants that are average, an unfortunate amount of bars for the size of the town and a lot of churches if you're of the christian faith. It does have rather easy access to major roadways to Madison and Chicago, as well as several public facilities like the library and pool that are high points of the area.
Small town where everyone knows each other and helps support each other. Lovely place for kids of all ages and close enough to bigger cities to find things to do.
