I love Fort Morgan, it's a small town to the point where you know a lot of people. But at the same time, it is big enough that we have places to get groceries and tons of great restaurants! It is a great place to grow up and have a family!
I have lived in Fort Morgan since I was a elementary student and it has been awesome to see how much the town has grown. Such in relation to roads, buildings, mainstreet and tons of other things being renovated. My dad was a engineer and helped with all of those projects and to see the ins and outs of how things changed. The school system had changed maybe not for the better but has changed. The growth Fort Morgan presented is what made me love this town.
