Emerson Reviews

Emerson is a quaint little city with less than 1,500 people. They truly have a family/community vibe going on. I have recently moved to Emerson after being out of the country for eight years. I'm originally from Ohio and have found the weather and scenery to be breathe taking. The people's warmth and southern charm add a cherry on top of the whole transition into becoming a resident of Emerson.
