Gaston Reviews

Gaston, Indiana is a very small town with little to do, but you make your own fun! There is a wonderful, family owned restaurant called The Barking Cow, located by the only stop light in town, that has amazing food. Gaston also has a couple playgrounds where kids like to play and have fun. Although there isn't a lot to do, it's still a good town to stay in.

A well-known community of meth dealers and farmers. Many families accidentally date their cousins due to the population mainly coming from one family tree. Schools are excellent but small and the community is very supportive.
