Fern Prairie Reviews

2 reviews
This area is a nice place to live. There are many trees to admire and things to do not far out of the way. The only thing that makes me sad is when there are areas where trees once stood now being taken out for homes. If I could do it all over again I would live here again because we live out in the country where there isn't too much action and we live on a fairly large piece of land. I do not see many changes for our town in the future, but I do hope that we are able to keep most of our trees.
