I have lived in Freeland for all 17 years of my life, I have lived here through my father's death in 2016 and during that time I felt the full love and compassion from my community. Everyone from teachers and coaches to classmates I barely knew were all so supportive during that time. The town of Freeland may be small but we all share a big heart.

I really like Freeland. It's an extremely small town, but the people that live in Freeland are very nice and the school system is great. They offer lots of sports programs and after school activities. The only thing that I would say is a downfall is that there isn't very much to do in Freeland and there is only one grocery store. The grocery store that Freeland has is a great store, but it is a little pricey.
I have lived in Freeland for most of my life. It is a great community with lots of support from others. Freeland has its problems, but so do other towns. We are a small town with big dreams.
